FASTK or Fas-Activated Serine/Threonine Kinase is a member of the serine/threonine protein kinase family that becomes rapidly activated during Fas-mediated apoptosis in Jurkat cells and in response to Fas receptor ligation. FASTK interacts with and phosphorylates TIA1 which is an apoptosis-promoting nuclear RNA-binding protein. FAST K influences alternative pre-mRNA splicing by affecting the activity of TIA-1/TIAR (1). FASTK is a strong inducer of lymphocyte apoptosis. FASTK is the component of the molecular cascade that involved in FAS-mediated apoptosis (2). FASTK is highly expreesed in heart, brain, placenta, lung, liver, skeletal muscle, kidney, and pancreas.
