After its ligation with CD40 ligand (CD40L), CD40 is activated and triggers direct recruitment of multiple TRAF proteins and initiate non-canonical NF-kB pathway. TRAF1, TRAF2, TRAF3, and TRAF6, but not TRAF4 or TRAF5, shown to bind directly to the CD40 cytoplasmic domain (Pullen et al. 1998). TRAF2 is part of the regulatory complex which includes cellular inhibitor of apoptosis (cIAP) 1 and 2 and which in turn interacts with TRAF3 and NFkB-inducing kinase (NIK). In unstimulated cells this regulatory complex acts as a negative regulator of non-canonical NFkB pathway by constantly degrading NIK, whereas up on recruitment to CD40 this complex leads to accumulation of NIK (Elgueta et al. 2009, Schonbeck & Libby 2001).
