Western blot analysis of TRAF6 over-expressed 293 cell line, cotransfected with TRAF6 Validated Chimera RNAi ( Cat # H00007189-R01V ) (Lane 2) or non-transfected control (Lane 1). Blot probed with TRAF6 monoclonal antibody (M02), clone 1B2 (Cat # H00007189-M02 ). GAPDH ( 36.1 kDa ) used as specificity and loading control.
Proximity Ligation Analysis of protein-protein interactions between TRAF4 and TRAF6. HeLa cells were stained with anti-TRAF4 rabbit purified polyclonal 1:1200 and anti-TRAF6 mouse monoclonal antibody 1:50. Each red dot represents the detection of protein-protein interaction complex, and nuclei were counterstained with DAPI (blue).
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the TNF receptor associated factor (TRAF) protein family. TRAF proteins are associated with, and mediate signal transduction from members of the TNF receptor superfamily. This protein mediates the signaling not only from the members of the TNF receptor superfamily, but also from the members of the Toll/IL-1 family. Signals from receptors such as CD40, TNFSF11/RANCE and IL-1 have been shown to be mediated by this protein. This protein also interacts with various protein kinases including IRAK1/IRAK, SRC and PKCzeta, which provides a link between distinct signaling pathways. This protein functions as a signal transducer in the NF-kappaB pathway that activates IkappaB kinase (IKK) in response to proinflammatory cytokines. The interaction of this protein with UBE2N/UBC13, and UBE2V1/UEV1A, which are ubiquitin conjugating enzymes catalyzing the formation of polyubiquitin chains, has been found to be required for IKK activation by this protein. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding identical proteins have been reported. [provided by RefSeq
