A protein-protein interaction map of the TNF-induced NF-kappaB signal transduction pathway.

Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) has a crucial role in inflammation, cell proliferation and cell death. Dysregulation of TNF receptor 1 (TNFR1)-induced Nuclear Factor-kappa B (NF-κB) signaling leads to chronic inflammation and is associated with several human inflammatory pathologies. Hence, TNF neutralization suppresses inflammation and attenuates inflammatory pathology. However, despite its beneficial effects, anti-TNF therapy suffers from efficacy issues and severe immune side effects. There is thus an urging need to identify novel targets for pharmaceutical intervention in the NF-κB signaling pathway. Here, we present a protein-protein interaction dataset of the TNFR1-induced signaling pathway. For this, we used Virotrap, a novel method for studying protein complexes without disrupting the cellular integrity, on 12 central proteins controlling NF-κB and cell death signaling, both under resting conditions as well as upon TNF stimulation. Our dataset reveals dynamic interactions in TNFR1-induced NF-κB signaling and identifies both known as well as novel interactors that may help to further unravel the molecular mechanisms steering TNF-induced inflammatory signaling and pathology.
