  • Target

    • Function
      Cytokine that binds to TNFRSF3/LTBR. Binding to the decoy receptor TNFRSF6B modulates its effects. Activates NFKB, stimulates the proliferation of T-cells, and inhibits growth of the adenocarcinoma HT-29. Acts as a receptor for Herpes simplex virus.
    • Tissue specificity
      Predominantly expressed in the spleen but also found in the brain. Weakly expressed in peripheral lymphoid tissues and in heart, placenta, liver, lung, appendix, and kidney, and no expression seen in fetal tissues, endocrine glands, or nonhematopoietic tumor lines.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the tumor necrosis factor family.
    • Post-translational
      The soluble form of isoform 1 derives from the membrane form by proteolytic processing.
    • Cellular localization
      Cytoplasm; Secreted and Cell membrane.
