Genes

FAF1

Fas (TNFRSF6) associated factor 1 (FAF1) is a gene that encodes a protein that functions in mediating programmed cell death (apoptosis) in multiple organ systems. Apoptosis is initiated by the interaction of the Fas ligand with the FAS antigen. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, and frameshift deletions and insertions are observed in cancers such as pituitary cancer, skin cancer, and stomach cancer.
