Literature on TRAIP
RING-type E3 ubiquitin transferase TRAIP; E3 ubiquitin ligase acting as a negative regulator of innate immune signaling. Inhibits activation of NF-kappa-B mediated by TNF. Negatively regulates TLR3/4- and RIG-I-mediated IRF3 activation and subsequent IFNB1 production and cellular antiviral response by promoting 'Lys-48'-linked polyubiquitination of TNK1 leading to its proteasomal degradation (By similarity). Involved in response to genotoxic lesions during genome replication. Promotes H2AX and RPA2 phosphorylation after replication-associated DNA damage and assists fork progression at UV-induced replication-blocking lesions during S phase. Has also been proposed to play a role in promoting translesion synthesis by mediating the assembly of 'Lys- 63'-linked poly-ubiquitin chains on the Y-family polymerase POLN in order to facilitate bypass of DNA lesions and preserve genomic integrity. The function in translesion synthesis is controversial; Ring finger proteins
