TNF receptor-associated factor 4

Gene

TRAF4

Organism
Homo sapiens (Human)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: Annotation score: 5 out of 5-Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Adapter protein and signal transducer that links members of the tumor necrosis factor receptor (TNFR) family to different signaling pathways. Plays a role in the activation of NF-kappa-B and JNK, and in the regulation of cell survival and apoptosis. Regulates activation of NF-kappa-B in response to signaling through Toll-like receptors. Required for normal skeleton development, and for normal development of the respiratory tract (By similarity). Required for activation of RPS6KB1 in response to TNF signaling. Modulates TRAF6 functions.By similarity6 Publications

Homotrimer (Probable). Interacts with LTBR/TNFRSF3, NGFR/TNFRSF16, RPS6KB1 and TGFB1I1. Interacts with SMURF1. Interacts (via TRAF domain) with MAP3K4 (via kinase domain). Interacts with NCF1, TICAM1, IRAK1 and TRAF6, and is probably part of a complex containing TRAF4, NCF1, TICAM1, IRAK1 and TRAF6.Curated8 Publications

Links to similar proteins from the UniProt Reference Clusters (UniRef) at 100%, 90% and 50% sequence identity:
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.
