Protein kinase Cmu (PKCmu) represents a new subtype of the PKC family characterized by the presence of a pleckstrin homology (PH) domain and an amino-terminal hydrophobic region. In order to analyse the potential role of PKCmu in signal-transduction pathways, stable PKCmu transfectants were established with human and murine cell lines. All transfectants(More)
Costimulation of TNFR80 can strongly enhance TNFR60-induced cell death. In this study, we show that this enhancement is TNFR60 selective, as neither TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand/Apo2 ligand-, Apo1/Fas-, ceramide-, nor daunorubicin-mediated cell death was affected by costimulation of TNFR80. We further demonstrate that TNFR-associated factor 2(More)
To understand how the TNF receptor-associated factor 1 (TRAF1) is transcriptionally regulated, in vitro DNA binding assays, promoter-reporter gene assays, and RNase protection assays were performed with the human TRAF1 gene. Binding of NF-kappaB to three of five putative binding sites within the human TRAF1 promoter was found in electrophoretic mobility(More)
Fas/Apo1 and other cytotoxic receptors of the tumor necrosis factor receptor (TNFR) family contain a cytoplasmic death domain (DD) [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] that activates the apoptotic process by interacting with the DD-containing adaptor proteins TNFR-associated DD protein (TRADD) [12] [13] and Fas-associated DD protein (FADD/MORT1)(More)
A new family of signal transducing proteins, associated with members of the tumour necrosis factor receptor (TNFR) superfamily, has recently been identified. The structural hallmark of these molecules is a novel C-terminal homology region of 230 bp designated as TRAF (TNF receptor-associated factor) domain, which is involved in a variety of specific(More)
