  Domain Name: MATH_TRAF6
Tumor Necrosis Factor Receptor (TNFR)-Associated Factor (TRAF) family, TRAF6 subfamily, TRAF domain, C-terminal MATH subdomain; composed of proteins with similarity to human TRAF6, including the Drosophila protein DTRAF2. 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. TRAF6 is the most divergent in its TRAF domain among the mammalian TRAFs. In addition to mediating TNFR family signaling, it is also an essential signaling molecule of the interleukin-1/Toll-like receptor superfamily. Whereas other TRAF molecules display similar and overlapping TNFR-binding specificities, TRAF6 binds completely different sites on receptors such as CD40 and RANK. TRAF6 serves as a molecular bridge between innate and adaptive immunity and plays a central role in osteoimmunology. DTRAF2, as an activator of nuclear factor-kappaB, plays a pivotal role in Drosophila development and innate immunity. TRAF6 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.
