IRAK1 a TKL kinase of the IRAK family. Involved in Toll/IL-1 signaling. One of two putative serine/threonine kinases that become associated with the interleukin-1 receptor following IL-1 engagement, triggering intracellular signaling cascades leading to transcriptional up-regulation and mRNA stabilization. Extensively phosphorylated after its association with IL1-R-1. Polyubiquitinated; after cell stimulation with IL-1-beta. Polyubiquitination occurs with polyubiquitin chains linked through 'Lys-63'. Partially responsible for IL1-induced upregulation of the transcription factor NF-kappa B. Three isoforms of the human protein and produced by alternative splicing. Isoform 1 binds rapidly but is then degraded allowing isoform 2 to mediate a slower, more sustained response to the cytokine. Isoform 2 is inactive suggesting that the kinase activity of this enzyme is not required for IL-1 signaling. Once phosphorylated, IRAK1 recruits the adapter protein PELI1. Isoform 1 and isoform 2 are ubiquitously expressed in all tissues examined, with isoform 1 being more strongly expressed than isoform 2. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
