TNFSF12 is a cytokine that is part of the TNF ligand family. TNFSF12 is a ligand for the FN14/TWEAKR receptor. TNFSF12 has overlapping signaling functions with TNF, but displays a much wider tissue distribution. TNFSF12 induces apoptosis throµgh multiple pathways of cell death in a cell type-specific manner. TNFSF12 promotes proliferation and migration of endothelial cells, and therefore acts as a regulator of angiogenesis. TNFSF12 is expressed in adult heart, pancreas, skeletal muscle, small intestine, spleen and peripheral blood lymphocytes. TWEAK h induces NFkB and chemokine secretion. TNFSF12 exerts an apoptotic activity in HT-29 human adenocarcinoma cells whilst cultured in the presence of IFN-?. TNFSF12 promotes proliferation and migration of endothelial cells.
