InnateDB Annotation
Summary
TANK is involved in interferon responses and is a negative regulator of pro-inflammatory cytokine production induced by TLR signalling.
TANK plays a key role in the cross-talk between the IKK-related and the canonical IKK kinases, a mechanism required to limit the strength of TLR-signalling and prevent autoimmunity. (Demonstrated in mice)

Entrez Gene
Summary The TRAF (tumor necrosis factor receptor-associated factor) family of proteins associate with and transduce signals from members of the tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily. The protein encoded by this gene is found in the cytoplasm and can bind to TRAF1, TRAF2, or TRAF3, thereby inhibiting TRAF function by sequestering the TRAFs in a latent state in the cytoplasm. For example, the protein encoded by this gene can block TRAF2 binding to LMP1, the Epstein-Barr virus transforming protein, and inhibit LMP1-mediated NF-kappa-B activation. Three alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2010]
