InnateDB Annotation
RIPK3 forms a complex with TICAM1 upon Toll-like receptors (TLR) 3 and 4 activation resulting in RIPK3-dependent but TNF-independent necrosis in macrophages. (Demonstrated in mouse)
RIPK3 interacts with ZBP1 to mediate virus-induced necrosis. (Demonstrated in mice)
InnateDB Annotation from Orthologs
[Mus musculus] Ripk3 forms a complex with Ticam1 upon Toll-like receptors (TLR) 3 and 4 activation resulting in Ripk3-dependent but TNF-independent necrosis in macrophages.
[Mus musculus] Ripk3 interacts with Zbp1 to mediate virus-induced necrosis.
[Mus musculus] Ripk3 has a novel function in NF-kB activation, dendritic cell biology, innate inflammatory-cytokine expression, and injury-induced tissue repair.
Entrez Gene
Summary The product of this gene is a member of the receptor-interacting protein (RIP) family of serine/threonine protein kinases, and contains a C-terminal domain unique from other RIP family members. The encoded protein is predominantly localized to the cytoplasm, and can undergo nucleocytoplasmic shuttling dependent on novel nuclear localization and export signals. It is a component of the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) receptor-I signaling complex, and can induce apoptosis and weakly activate the NF-kappaB transcription factor. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
