Functioni

Regulates pathways leading to the activation of NF-kappa-B and MAP kinases, and plays a central role in the regulation of B-cell survival. Part of signaling pathways leading to the production of cytokines and interferon. Required for normal antibody isotype switching from IgM to IgG. Plays a role T-cell dependent immune responses. Plays a role in the regulation of antiviral responses. Is an essential constituent of several E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complexes. May have E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase activity and promote 'Lys-63'-linked ubiquitination of target proteins. Inhibits activation of NF-kappa-B in response to LTBR stimulation. Inhibits TRAF2-mediated activation of NF-kappa-B. Down-regulates proteolytic processing of NFKB2, and thereby inhibits non-canonical activation of NF-kappa-B. Promotes ubiquitination and proteasomal degradation of MAP3K14.10 Publications

Pathology & Biotechi

Disruption phenotypei

Newborns appear normal, but do not thrive. Their blood glucose levels and leukocyte levels decrease steadily, the spleen size is dramatically reduced, and they become progressively runted. They die about ten days after birth. Mice exhibit abnormally high MAP3K14 protein levels and constitutive proteolytic processing of NFKB2/p100, leading to constitutive activation of NF-kappa-B.3 Publications

Post-translational modificationi

Undergoes 'Lys-48'-linked polyubiquitination, leading to its proteasomal degradation in response to signaling by TNFSF13B, TLR4 or through CD40. 'Lys-48'-linked polyubiquitinated form is deubiquitinated by OTUD7B, preventing TRAF3 proteolysis and over-activation of non-canonical NF-kappa-B. Undergoes 'Lys-63'-linked ubiquitination during early stages of virus infection, and 'Lys-48'-linked ubiquitination during later stages. Undergoes both 'Lys-48'-linked and 'Lys-63'-linked ubiquitination in response to TLR3 and TLR4 signaling. Deubiquitinated by OTUB1, OTUB2 and OTUD5.3 Publications

100%UniRef100 combines identical sequences and sub-fragments with 11 or more residues from any organism into one UniRef entry.
90%UniRef90 is built by clustering UniRef100 sequences that have at least 90% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence (a.k.a seed sequence).
50%UniRef50 is built by clustering UniRef90 seed sequences that have at least 50% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence in the cluster.
