Tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily member 16 - P08138 (TNR16_HUMAN)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Low affinity receptor which can bind to NGF, BDNF, NTF3, and NTF4. Forms a heterodimeric receptor with SORCS2 that binds the precursor forms of NGF, BDNF and NTF3 with high affinity, and has much lower affinity for mature NGF and BDNF (PubMed:24908487). Plays an important role in differentiation and survival of specific neuronal populations during development (By similarity). Can mediate cell survival as well as cell death of neural cells. Plays a role in the inactivation of RHOA (PubMed:26646181). Plays a role in the regulation of the translocation of GLUT4 to the cell surface in adipocytes and skeletal muscle cells in response to insulin, probably by regulating RAB31 activity, and thereby contributes to the regulation of insulin-dependent glucose uptake (By similarity). Necessary for the circadian oscillation of the clock genes ARNTL/BMAL1, PER1, PER2 and NR1D1 in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCmgetaN) of the brain and in liver and of the genes involved in glucose and lipid metabolism in the liver (PubMed:23785138).

Subunit Structure
Homodimer; disulfide-linked (By similarity). Heterodimer with SORCS2. The extracellular domains of the heterodimer bind NGF (PubMed:22155786, PubMed:24908487). The cytoplasmic region of the heterodimer binds TRIO. NGF binding mediates dissociation of TRIO from the receptor complex (PubMed:22155786). Interacts with RTN4R (PubMed:19052207). Interacts with TRAF2, TRAF4, TRAF6, PTPN13 and RANBP9 (PubMed:10514511, PubMed:9915784, PubMed:10544233, PubMed:12963025). Interacts through TRAF6 with SQSTM1 which bridges NGFR to NTRK1 (PubMed:11244088). Interacts with BEX1 (By similarity). Interacts with BEX3 (By similarity). Interacts with KIDINS220 and NTRK1. Can form a ternary complex with NTRK1 and KIDINS220 and this complex is affected by the expression levels of KIDINS220. An increase in KIDINS220 expression leads to a decreased association of NGFR and NTRK1. Interacts with NTRK2; may regulate the ligand specificity of the NTRK2 receptor (By similarity). Interacts (via death domain) with RAB31 (By similarity). Interacts with LINGO1 (PubMed:14966521). Interacts with NRADD (By similarity). Interacts with MAGED1; the interaction antagonizes the association NGFR:NTRK1 (By similarity). Interacts (via death domain) with ARHGDIA and RIPK2 (PubMed:26646181). UniProt

Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
