FADD (Fas Associated Death Domain) is an apoptosis adapter molecule enabling transduction of the apoptosis signal initiated via the FasL/Fas receptor interaction. The protein contains a C-terminal death domain that interacts with the Fas receptor death domain. The N-terminus contains a death effectors domain (DED, which recruits caspase to the death inducing signaling complex (DISC) and initiates the apoptotic caspase cascade. FADD is implicated in non-apoptotic cellular pathways such as the regulation of cell cycle machinery in T lymphocytes. This is connected to the phosphorylation state of FADD and to the FasL/TRAIL-induced transcriptional activation of c-fos protooncogene. FADD also interacts with the hepatitis C virus core protein in the HEK-293 cell line.
