Binding of the TNF-[alpha] trimer to the extracellular domain of TNFR1 induces receptor trimerization and recruitment of the adaptor protein TNF receptor-associated death domain (TRADD), which in turn recruits additional adaptor proteins: receptor-interacting protein (RIP), TNF receptor-associated factor 2 (TRAF2), and Fas-associated death domain (FADD).
