"NF-kappaB- inducing kinase (NIK) has been implicated as an essential component of NF-kappaB activation. However, the regulatory mechanism of NIK signaling remains elusive. We have identified a novel NIK interacting protein, TNAP (for TRAFs and NIK-associated protein)," scientists in the United States report.
"In mammalian cells," wrote W.H. Hu and coauthors, "TNAP physically interacts with NIK, TRAF2, and TRAF3 but not IKK1 or IKK2. TNAP specifically inhibits NF-kappaB activation induced by tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha, TNF receptor 1, TRADD, RIP, TRAF2, and NIK...
