name: death domain binding
def: "Interacting selectively and non-covalently with a death domain of a protein. The death domain (DD) is a homotypic protein interaction module composed of a bundle of six alpha-helices. DD bind each other forming oligomers. Some DD-containing proteins are involved in the regulation of apoptosis and inflammation through their activation of caspases and NF-kappaB." [GOC:BHF, GOC:rl, InterPro:IPR000488, Pfam:PF00531]
comment: For binding to the death effector domain, consider instead the term 'death effector domain binding ; GO:0035877'.
