25449573 Authors conclude that ECSIT appears to be a novel Hepatitis B virus X protein-interacting signal molecule and their interaction is mechanistically important in IL-1beta induction of NF-kappaB activation.
25371197 Data show that the ECSIT (evolutionarily conserved signaling intermediate in Toll pathways) complex, including MEKK7 (TAK1) and TNF receptor-associated factor 6 (TRAF6), plays a role in Toll-like receptor 4 -mediated signals to activate NF-kappa B.
25355951 Ubiquitination of ECSIT might have a role in the regulation of NF-kappaB activity in TLR4 signaling.
25228397 mediates virus-triggered type I IFN induction by bridging RIG-I and MDA5 to the VISA complex
22588174 TRIM59 interacts with ECSIT as an adaptor protein required for the TLR-mediated transduction pathway.
20877624 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
17344420 Study shows a mitochondrial function for Ecsit in the assembly of mitochondrial complex I, an N-terminal targeting signal directs Ecsit to mitochondria, where it interacts with assembly chaperone NDUFAF1.
