Summaries for TRAF4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TRAF4 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the TNF receptor associated factor (TRAF) family. TRAF proteins are associated with, and mediate signal transduction from members of the TNF receptor superfamily. The encoded protein has been shown to interact with neurotrophin receptor, p75 (NTR/NTSR1), and negatively regulate NTR induced cell death and NF-kappa B activation. This protein has been found to bind to p47phox, a cytosolic regulatory factor included in a multi-protein complex known as NAD(P)H oxidase. This protein thus, is thought to be involved in the oxidative activation of MAPK8/JNK. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been observed but the full-length nature of only one has been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for TRAF4 Gene

TRAF4 (TNF Receptor Associated Factor 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Pathways in cancer and Small cell lung cancer. GO annotations related to this gene include protein kinase binding and ubiquitin protein ligase binding. An important paralog of this gene is TRAF5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TRAF4 Gene

  • 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.
