TNF receptor-associated factor 5 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the TRAF5 gene.[1]

The scaffold protein encoded by this gene is a member of the tumor necrosis factor receptor-associated factor (TRAF) protein family and contains a meprin and TRAF homology (MATH) domain, a RING-type zinc finger, and two TRAF-type zinc fingers. TRAF proteins are associated with, and mediate signal transduction from members of the TNF receptor superfamily. This protein is one of the components of a multiple protein complex which binds to tumor necrosis factor (TNF) receptor cytoplasmic domains and mediates TNF-induced activation. Alternate transcriptional splice variants have been characterized.[2]


TRAF5 has been shown to interact with ASK1,[3][4] TNFRSF13B,[5] CD134,[6] CD30,[7] CD40,[8][9] RANK[10][11][12] and TNFRSF14.[13][14]
