Synthetic peptide (Human).
Members in the TNF superfamily regulate immune responses and induce apoptosis. Two novel members in the TNF family were recently identified and designated BAFF/BLyS/TALL1/THANK/zTNF4 and April/TALL2, respectively. BAFF was characterized as a B cell activator since it induced B cell proliferation and immunoglobulin secretion. April regulates immunological and non immunological cell growth. Three receptors, BCMA (for B cell maturation protein), TACI, and BAFFR, for BAFF were recently identified. BCMA, like TACI, binds BAFF and April. BAFF and its receptors induce B cell development and survival, activate NF-kappaB and c-jun N-terminal kinase, and are involved in B cell associated autoimmune diseases.
