181 TNF-R2 can also induce JNK, but not ERKs. 182 A protein containing a domain with low DD homology termed MADD or Rab3-GAP binds to the DD of TNF-R1 and is able to activate MAP kinase pathways. 183,184 Various splice variants of MADD exist which are also termed DENN. 185 Further, the adapter protein Grb2 binds to a PLAP motif of TNF-R1, thereby potentially linking this receptor via SOS to Ras, c-Raf and the ERKs. 186 This signal, however, appears not sufficient to efficiently activate the MAP kinases, as FAN/nSMase-derived ceramide acting on the ceramide-activated protein.
