  • an N-terminal TRAF binding domain and
  • a leucine zipper domains,
  • a conserved TRAF-C domain, required for self association (dimerization) and receptor binding, export sequences that cause shuttling between the cytoplasm and nucleus
  • a SXXE/D motifs found in the cytoplasmic domains of many TNFR family members and their adaptor proteins, that may serve to function as a specific interaction module for the alpha-helical death domain signal
  • a C terminal DEATH domain, comprising a coiled coil region, responsible for binding other DD-containing proteins including the p75 neurotrophin receptor (p75NTR)
  • mono polymer homomer , dimer

    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     plasma membrane
    intracellular,nucleus,nucleoplasm,nuclear bodies,PML
  • translocated to nucleus in the absence of export
  • TRADD shuttles dynamically from the cytoplasm into the nucleus to modulate the interaction between CDKN2A and its E3 ubiquitin ligase TRIP12, thereby promoting CDKN2A stability and tumour suppression
  • cytoplasmic TRADD translocates to DNA double-strand break sites (DSBs) during the DNA damage response (DDR)
  • basic FUNCTION
  • recruiting signaling molecules to the TNFRSF1A (TNFR1) complex
  • mediating programmed cell death apoptosis and activating NF-Kappa B distinctly
  • activates distinct mechanisms of apoptosis from the nucleus and the cytoplasm (can regulate cell death independently of FADD and caspase-8 that occurs from the nucleus rather than the cytoplasm)
  • may be a critical player in the host antiviral and antibacterial response
  • plays an important role in TLR signaling via participation in TICAM1-dependent NFKB activation
  • biological function of TRADD in TNF signaling (
  • plays a survival role in TNFSF10 signaling
  • key effector protein of TNFR1 signaling
  • essential role of TRADD in DR3 (death receptor) signaling
  • has a survival role in TNFSF10 signaling and may be one potential target for overcoming TNFSF10 resistance in cancer therapy
  • oncogenic role for TRADD in glioblastoma multiforme (GBM)
  • FADD and TRADD proteins are important regulators of cell fate in mammalian cells
  • translocation of TRADD to DSBs into the nucleus contributes to cell survival in response to DNA damage through an activation of DNA damage repair
  • is an intracellular adaptor protein involved in various signaling pathways, such as antiapoptosis
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell life, cell death/apoptosis
    signaling signal transduction
    a component
  • heterodimerizing with TNFRSF1A
    small molecule
  • mediating ubiquination and degradation of TRADD
  • TRAF2, crucial for the suppression of apoptosis
  • TNFR1SA1
  • critical signaling mediator of TRAF3 that is required for TRAF3 to recruit and activate I-kappaB kinase beta (IKKbeta)
  • RPS3 appears to be recruited to the death-inducing signaling complex (DISC) to induce apoptosis by interacting TRADD in response to extracellular stresses
  • TRADD is an adapter molecule that bridges the interaction between TNFRSF1A and receptor-interacting serine/threonine-protein kinase 1 (RIPK1)
  • mediating, in connection with TRAF2, the entry of TRAF6 into the TRAF3 (oncogenic latent membrane protein 1 of the Epstein-Barr virus) complex
  • essential role for the adaptor protein TRADD in CASP8 activation and necrosome formation triggered by MAP3K7 inhibition
  • CFTR binds to and colocalizes with TRADD
  • by reducing the levels of TRADD, CFTR suppresses downstream proinflammatory NFKB1 signaling
  • is an adaptor for TNFRSF1A-induced apoptosis and NFKB1 activation
  • TRADD plays a more dominating role in NFKB1-signaling than RIPK1
