We recently demonstrated that the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) receptor-associated factor 6 (TRAF6) helps maintenance of cell survival by regulating glycogen synthase kinase 3beta (GSK3beta) activity during TNF signaling. However, the molecular linkage between TRAF6 and GSK3beta signaling is unknown. Herein, we showed that TRAF6 positively regulated cell survival by modulating PI3K-Akt-GSK3beta cascades. In 3T3 cells lacking TRAF6, but not those lacking TRAF2, TNF stimulation led to prolonged hyperphosphorylation of Akt, which coincided with the activation of upstream PI3K. Pharmacologically blocking PI3K significantly inhibited Akt and GSK3beta phosphorylation. Importantly, PI3K inhibition rescued cell death in TRAF6-null 3T3 cells. These data suggested TRAF6 regulates TNF-mediated cell survival through PI3K-Akt-GSK3beta cascades.
