|UniProt annotation for TNF12_HUMAN » Tumor necrosis factor ligand superfamily member 12|
|FUNCTION: Binds to FN14 and possibly also to TNRFSF12/APO3. Weak inducer of apoptosis in some cell types. Mediates NF-kappa-B activation. Promotes angiogenesis and the proliferation of endothelial cells. Also involved in induction of inflammatory cytokines. Promotes IL8 secretion. SUBUNIT: Homotrimer (Probable). Interacts with the angiogenic factor AGGF1/VG5Q. TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Highly expressed in adult heart, pancreas, skeletal muscle, brain, colon, small intestine, lung, ovary, prostate, spleen, lymph node, appendix and peripheral blood lymphocytes. Low expression in kidney, testis, liver, placenta, thymus and bone marrow. Also detected in fetal kidney, liver, lung and brain.|
