  • can be expressed in several compartments, including cytosol, and lipid raft and nonraft membrane fractions in unstimulated T cells
  • basic FUNCTION
  • critical lipid raft-associated regulator of TCR-induced NF-kappa B activation and CD28 costimulation-dependent JNK activation
  • involved in factor- specific activation of NF-kappaB by the TCR complex and establishing a role for a MAGUK family member in antigen receptor signaling
  • involved in both the innate and adaptive immune systems
  • playing a critical role in mediating activation of the NFkappaB transcription factor following antigen receptor stimulation of both B and T lymphocytes
  • is a key upstream signaling component responsible for the constitutive IkappaB kinase activity in activated B-cell-like DLBCL
  • playing a critical role for coupling the common elements of the NF-kappaB pathway to the T-cell receptor (TCR) and CD28
  • serves as a physiological substrate for MAP4K1 upon TCR stimulation
  • role in regulatory T Cell regulation involves both NF-KB activation and IL2 receptor signaling
  • TRAF2 and CARD11 serve as keystones for formation of the full TNFRSF4 signalosome and for allowing NFkB activation by TNFRSF4 in T cells
  • is an adapter that links the TCR to NFKB1 activity, cell survival, and proliferation
  • is an essential adaptor protein that links Ag receptors to NFKB1 activation
  • CARD11/BCL10/MALT1 (CBM) signalosome mediates antigen receptor-induced NFKB1 signaling to regulate multiple lymphocyte functions
  • CARD11, BCL10, and MALT1, that have complex 5'UTRs and encode proteins with short half-lives, are involved in BCR signaling
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell life, cell death/apoptosis
    signaling signal transduction
    a component
  • CARD11-BCL10-MALT1 (CBM) complex connects T-cell receptor (TCR) signalling to the canonical IkappaB kinase (IKK)/NF (nuclear factor)-kappaB pathway
  • TCR/CARD11/NFKB1 axis is an essential T-cell–intrinsic pathway for functional activity of the Th17 transcriptional machinery

  • FYB regulating T cell receptor-mediated activation of integrins via association with the SKAP1 adapter and the NFKB1 pathway through interactions with both the CARD11 adapter and MAP3K7
  • CARD11 serves as a scaffold for BCL10, MALT1 and other effector proteins and regulates various signaling pathways related to the immune response
  • STUB1 is a CARD11 associated protein, and ubiquitination of CARD11 by STUB1 promotes TCR-induced NFKB1 signaling
  • interaction mode between CARD11 CARD and BCL10 CARD based on a structure-based modeling study
  • SMO activates trimeric G proteins and CARD11-associated signaling complex, leading to NFKB1 activation, contributing to the survival of DLBCL
  • PLEKHO1 interacts with CARD11 and has an inhibitory effect on PKCQ-CBM-NFKB1 signaling
  • is a novel target for AKT1 phosphorylation, suggesting that AKT1-mediated phosphorylation of CARD11 is an additional regulatory mechanism tuning the NFKB1 response downstream of antigen receptor and co-stimulatory signaling
