In MyD88-dependent pathway, there is the recruitment and activation of IRAKs and TRAF6, inducing TAK1 activation.
Thus, whereas stimulation of CCKR by low dose cerulein induces protein kinase C (PKC) and TAK1 activation as in previous studies, (112) the level of such activation by low dose cerulein alone is not sufficient to induce activation of NF-[kappa]B; likewise, NOD1 activation of RIP2 also is not sufficient to induce activation of NF-[kappa]B.
Those results point to the prominent roles of TAK1 in inflammation and fibrosis events, such as PVR [8].

AMPK[alpha]1 has been demonstrated to play a pivotal role in inducing pro-inflammatory signals through the activation of TAK1 and NF-[kappa]B, (30) but its role in chronic HBV infection remains unclear.
IRAKs and TRAF6 are recruited to MyD88 and subsequently activate a complex of transforming growth factor-activated kinase 1 (TAK1) and TAK1-binding proteins resulting in phosphorylation of inhibitor of NF-?B and nuclear translocation of NF-?B.
Increased TRAF4, correlate with elevated levels of phosphorylated SMAD2 and phosphorylated TAK1 as well as poor prognosis among breast cancer patients.

LOUISVILLE, Ky., December 9, 2015 -- Scientists here have demonstrated that the protein kinase TAK1 (transforming growth factor-B-activated kinase 1) is vital in regulating the survival and proliferation of satellite stem cells, responsible for regenerating adult skeletal muscles.
TGF-[beta] and NF-[kappa]B signal pathway cross-talk is mediated through TAK1 and SMAD7 in a subset of head and neck cancers.
