Nonspecific binding was blocked with phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 0.1% Tween 20 (PBST) and 5% nonfat milk (dissolved with PBS) for 1 h, and the membranes were incubated overnight at 4[degrees]C with the following primary antibodies and dilutions: [beta]-actin (1: 1000) LC3 (1: 1000), Beclin 1 (1: 500), Bcl-2 (1: 1000), Bax (1:500), caspase-3 (1:500), JNK (1:1000), phospho-JNK (1: 500), and TRAF2 (1: 1000).

This interaction allows for the oligomerization of MAVS and the recruitment of regulatory subunits TRAF2, TRAF5, TRAF6, and NEMO.
(76) One of these ER receptors, IRE1a, accounts for the pro-inflammatory potential of the UPR by recruiting TRAF2 to the ER membrane and thus the activation of NF-[kappa]B and the production of IL-6.
Second, during ER stress, TRAF2 dissociates from the complex of TRAF2/procaspase-12 located in the ER membrane; the process activates caspase-12 and recruits the IRE1/JNK/TRAF2 complex that modulates ASK1 that in turn phosphorylates JNK and induces cell apoptosis [50].

Particularly in the retina, IRE1/TNF receptor-associated factor-2 (TRAF2)/apoptosis signal-regulating kinase-1 (ASK1)/c-Jun amino-terminal kinase (JNK) and PERK/eIF2[alpha]/ATF4/CHOP can elicit several AMD-related pathways via the induction of VEGF, CHOP, caspase 4, and NF-[kappa]B [87].
Specifically, dihydromyricetin dephosphorylates and inhibits the degradation of I[kappa]B[alpha], inactivates p65 nuclear translocation and downregulates the TNF-[alpha]-induced expression of TRAF2 and RIP1.
Also, IL-27 reduced the expression of proinflammatory or proosteoclastogenic genes TNF, IL-17a, and TRAF2 in differentiating osteoclasts on days 2, 5, and 7 (Figure 2(b)).
These protection effects of herbal extracts are acting through enhancing FBX07 and decreasing TRAF2 expression, which is probably mediated by GATA2 induction.
