Previous GeneCards Identifiers for CRADD Gene
This gene encodes a protein containing a death domain (DD) motif. This protein recruits caspase 2/ICH1 to the cell death signal transduction complex, which includes tumor necrosis factor receptor 1 (TNFR1A) and RIPK1/RIP kinase, and acts in promoting apoptosis. A mutation in this gene was associated with cognitive disability. A related pseudogene is found on chromosome 3. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

GeneCards Summary for CRADD Gene
CRADD (CASP2 And RIPK1 Domain Containing Adaptor With Death Domain) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CRADD include Mental Retardation, Autosomal Recessive 34, With Variant Lissencephaly and Autosomal Recessive Non-Syndromic Intellectual Disability. Among its related pathways are Apoptosis Modulation and Signaling and Apoptosis and survival Caspase cascade. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include protease binding and death domain binding.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for CRADD Gene
Adapter protein that associates with PIDD1 and the caspase CASP2 to form the PIDDosome, a complex that activates CASP2 and triggers apoptosis (PubMed:9044836, PubMed:15073321, PubMed:16652156, PubMed:17159900, PubMed:17289572). Also recruits CASP2 to the TNFR-1 signaling complex through its interaction with RIPK1 and TRADD and may play a role in the tumor necrosis factor-mediated signaling pathway (PubMed:8985253).
