  Domain Name: Death_IRAK
Death domain of Interleukin-1 Receptor-Associated Kinases. Death Domains (DDs) found in Interleukin-1 (IL-1) Receptor-Associated Kinases (IRAK1-4) and similar proteins. IRAKs are essential components of innate immunity and inflammation in mammals and other vertebrates. All four types are involved in signal transduction involving IL-1 and IL-18 receptors, Toll-like receptors, nuclear factor-kappaB, and mitogen-activated protein kinase pathways. IRAK1 and IRAK4 are active kinases while IRAK2 and IRAK-M (also called IRAK3) are inactive. In general, IRAKs are expressed ubiquitously, except for IRAK-M which is detected only in macrophages. The insect homologs, Pelle and Tube, are important components of the Toll pathway, which functions in establishing dorsoventral polarity in embryos and also in the innate immune response. Most members have an N-terminal DD followed by a kinase domain. In general, DDs are protein-protein interaction domains found in a variety of domain architectures. Their common feature is that they form homodimers by self-association or heterodimers by associating with other members of the DD superfamily including CARD (Caspase activation and recruitment domain), DED (Death Effector Domain), and PYRIN. They serve as adaptors in signaling pathways and can recruit other proteins into signaling complexes.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
