  • an extracytoplasmic cysteine-rich pseudorepeats typical for the TNFR superfamily
  • a preligand assembly domain (PLAD) in CRD1 mediating ligand-independent receptor assembly
  • a small cytoplasmic domain with the serine/threonine kinase
  • a DEATH domain, involved in the induction of A-Smase
  • a N-Smase activation domain (NSD) is both necessary and sufficient for activation of N-Smase
  • contains a membrane-proximal sequence that targets the receptor to caveolae/lipid rafts

    basic FUNCTION
  • involved at least in two independent pathways
  • acidic sphingomyelinase controlling expression of multiple TNF-responsive genes, including the apoptotic pathway
  • neutral sphingomyelinase critical for the inflammatory and proliferative responses induced by TNF
  • plays a key role in the initiation of inflammation, host defense, apoptosis, and cell survival through its ability to activate NFKB, mitogen-activated protein kinases, caspase-8, and other signaling responses
  • endogenous TNFRSF1B/TNFRSF1A signaling pathway in polymicrobial sepsis reduces neutrophil recruitment contributing to mortality
  • potential role as a positive T-cell costimulatory molecule that is important for timely T-cell activation and effector cytokine production and the development of primary immune responses
  • important for the development of secondary lymphoid organs during embryonic life, and is required for the formation of splenic compartments during adult, but not embryonic life
  • is predominantly associated with neurodegeneration
  • TNFRSF1A, TNFRSF1B were required for IRF1-IFNB signaling and, in human endothelial cells
  • TNFRSF1A, TNFRSF1B activities are required for the TNF-induced proinflammatory response
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell life, cell death/apoptosis
    a component with EED recruited to the TNFRSF1A•NSMAF•RACK1-complex
    small molecule
  • interacted with only TRPC4AP, TRAF2, and IKBKG
  • IGFBP5 interacts with TNFRSF1A through its N- and L-domains, and L-domain of IGFBP5 is a novel TNFRSF1A ligand that functions as a competitive TNF inhibitor JNK pathway)
  • IL32-mediated activity may be dependent on TNFRSF1A
  • is a novel UPR-regulated gene in response to severe hypoxia and ER stress, which is actively involved in the release of TNFRSF1A under these conditions
  • NDN is implicated through the TNFRSF1A pathway in the developmental death of motoneurons
  • TRAF2 is critical for either TNFRSF1A- or TNFRSF1B-mediated activation of NFKB and mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling, as well as for target gene expression
  • TRADD is an adapter molecule that bridges the interaction between TNFRSF1A and receptor-interacting serine/threonine-protein kinase 1 (RIPK1)
  • HACE1 is a central gatekeeper of TNFRSF1A-induced cell fate
  • TRADD is an adaptor for TNFRSF1A-induced apoptosis and NFKB1 activation
