Promotes apoptosis. Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. TKL Ser/Thr protein kinase family. Binds TRAF2 and RIPK1 and is recruited to the TNFR-1 signaling complex. 3 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
