Lethality: E7-E9
FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a protein that contains an N-terminal RING finger motif and a putative coiled-coil domain. A similar murine protein interacts with TNFR-associated factor 1 (TRAF1), TNFR-associated factor 2 (TRAF2), and cylindromatosis. The interaction with TRAF2 inhibits TRAF2-mediated nuclear factor kappa-B, subunit 1 activation that is required for cell activation and protection against apoptosis. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a null allele exhibit embryonic lethality at prior to E8.5, embryonic growth retardation, decreased embryonic size, decreased cell proliferation and increased apoptosis. [provided by MGI curators]

Protein Function and Prediction

TRAIP (alternatively, TRIP) is a RING-type E3 ubiquitin ligase that interacts with TRAF and functions to repress NF-κB signaling to regulate proliferation and differentiation [(1); reviewed in (2)].  Also, TRAIP interacts with Syk, a non-receptor protein kinase that acts as a tumor suppressor (3).  This interaction reduces the Syk-mediated increase in TNFα-dependent activation of NF-κB (4). TRAIP also interacts with the tumor suppressor CYLD (5).


Northern blot analysis of mouse tissues identified the Traip transcript in testis, thymus, and spleen (6). In keratinocytes undergoing differentiation (7) as well as in an immortalized monocytic cell line (1), Traip is downregulated.


siRNA-mediated knockdown of TRIP resulted in decreased keteratinocyte proliferation and cell cycle arrest at the G1/S phase (7).


Traiptm1Jarh/tm1Jarh; MGI:3764469


Homozygous mice are embryonic lethal by E8.5 (8).  Embryos examined at earlier time-points are decreased in size, have loss of embryonic tissues, absent proamniotic cavity, increased apoptosis, and decreased cell proliferation (8).
