BAG-family proteins share a conserved protein interaction region, called the 'BAG domain', which binds and regulates Hsp70/Hsc70 molecular chaperones. This family of cochaperones functionally regulates signal transducing proteins and transcription factors important for cell stress responses, apoptosis, proliferation, cell migration and hormone action.(More)
Lymphotoxin-beta receptor (LTbetaR) and CD40 are members of the tumor necrosis factor family of signaling receptors that regulate cell survival or death through activation of NF-kappaB. These receptors transmit signals through downstream adaptor proteins called tumor necrosis factor receptor-associated factors (TRAFs). In this study, the crystal structure(More)
TRAFs (tumor necrosis factor receptor [TNFR]-associated factors) bind to the cytoplasmic portion of liganded TNFRs and stimulate activation of NF-kappaB or JNK pathways. A modulator of TRAF signaling, TANK, serves as either an enhancer or an inhibitor of TRAF-mediated signaling pathways. The crystal structure of a region of TANK bound to TRAF3 has been(More)
p130(cas) (Crk-associated substrate) is a docking protein that is involved in assembly of focal adhesions and concomitant cellular signaling. It plays a role in physiological regulation of cell adhesion, migration, survival, and proliferation, as well as in oncogenic transformation. The molecule consists of multiple protein-protein interaction motifs,(More)
Tumor necrosis factor receptors (TNFR) signal events in immune responses, Ig class switching, activation of NF-kappaB or regulation of apoptosis. TNFR-associated factors (TRAFs) are adaptor proteins that connect TNFRs to downstream signaling pathways, including the NF-kappaB and c-JUN N-terminal kinase (JNK) pathways. Members of the TRAF family exist as(More)
The docking protein p130Cas becomes phosphorylated upon cell adhesion to extracellular matrix proteins, and is thought to play an essential role in cell transformation. Cas transmits signals through interactions with the Src-homology 3 (SH3) and Src-homology 2 domains of FAK or v-Crk signaling molecules, or with 14-3-3 protein, as well as phosphatases PTP1B(More)
