  Domain Name: MATH_TRAF5
Tumor Necrosis Factor Receptor (TNFR)-Associated Factor (TRAF) family, TRAF5 subfamily, TRAF domain, C-terminal MATH subdomain; TRAF molecules serve as adapter proteins that link TNFRs and downstream kinase cascades resulting in the activation of transcription factors and the regulation of cell survival, proliferation and stress responses. TRAF5 was identified as an activator of nuclear factor-kappaB and a regulator of lymphotoxin-beta receptor and CD40 signaling. Its interaction with CD40 is indirect, involving hetero-oligomerization with TRAF3. In addition, TRAF5 has been shown to associate with other TNFRs including CD27, CD30, OX40 and GITR (glucocorticoid-induced TNFR). It plays a role in modulating Th2 immune responses (driven by OX40 costimulation) and T-cell activation (triggered by GITR). It is also involved in osteoclastogenesis. TRAF5 contains a RING finger domain, five zinc finger domains, and a TRAF domain. The TRAF domain can be divided into a more divergent N-terminal alpha helical region (TRAF-N), and a highly conserved C-terminal MATH subdomain (TRAF-C) with an eight-stranded beta-sandwich structure. TRAF-N mediates trimerization while TRAF-C interacts with receptors.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
