  Domain Name: MATH_TRAF_C
Tumor Necrosis Factor Receptor (TNFR)-Associated Factor (TRAF) family, TRAF domain, C-terminal MATH subdomain; TRAF molecules serve as adapter proteins that link cell surface TNFRs and receptors of the interleukin-1/Toll-like family to downstream kinase signaling cascades which results in the activation of transcription factors and the regulation of cell survival, proliferation and stress responses in the immune and inflammatory systems. There are at least six mammalian and three Drosophila proteins containing TRAF domains. The mammalian TRAFs display varying expression profiles, indicating independent and cell type-specific regulation. They display distinct, as well as overlapping functions and interactions with receptors. Most TRAFs, except TRAF1, share N-terminal homology and contain a RING domain, multiple zinc finger domains, and a TRAF domain. TRAFs form homo- and heterotrimers through its 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.
