« Hide

Death-associated kinases (DAPKs) are tumour suppressor genes [1]. Family members share homologous catalytic domains and cell death-associated functions. DAPK activity is required for cell death induced by death receptor signalling, cytokines, matrix detachment, and oncogene-induced hyperproliferation. Loss of DAPK function is identified in many cancers.
