||Recombinant human TANK protein was expressed inE.coliand purified by using conventional chromatography techniques. 13.6 kDa (119 aa).
||TANK, also known as TRAF(tumor necrosis factor receptor-associated Factor)-interacting protein, is found in the cytoplasm and can bind to TRAF1, TRAF2, or TRAF3, thereby proposing that this protein is an inhibitor of TRAF function that regulates TRAF protein activity by sequestering TRAFs in a latent state in the cytoplasm. Overexpression of TANK inhibits TRAF2-mediated NF-Kappa-B activation signaled by CD40 and both TNF receptors and inhibits LMP1-mediated NF-kappa-B activation by blocking the association of TRAF2 with LMP1.
