  Domain Name: Death_MyD88
Death domain of Myeloid Differentation primary response protein MyD88. Death Domain (DD) of Myeloid Differentiation primary response protein 88 (MyD88). MyD88 is an adaptor protein involved in interleukin-1 receptor (IL-1R)- and Toll-like receptor (TLR)-induced activation of nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kB) and mitogen activated protein kinase pathways that lead to the induction of proinflammatory cytokines. It is a key component in the signaling pathway of pathogen recognition in the innate immune system. MyD88 contains an N-terminal DD and a C-terminal Toll/IL-1 Receptor (TIR) homology domain that mediates interaction with TLRs and IL-1R. 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.
