TRAFs are E3 ubiquitin ligases that bind to an E2 - ubiquitin thioester and catalyse Lys63-ubquitination on the associated target proteins and possibly on themselves [Lamothe B et al 2007, Mao AP et al 201]. Although TRAF2 failed to interact with a number of E2 ligases related to Ubc13 and showed considerable difference in its RING domain structure from the known TRAF6 RING structure [Yin Q et al 2009], yet TRAF2 is believed to act as an E3 ubiquitin ligase. Sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P), which is synthesized during inflammatory responces, was shown to bind to TRAF2 and stimulate TRAF2-mediated K63-linked polyubiquitination [Alvarez SE et al 2010; Napolitano G and Karin M 2010]
