TNF-alpha is a key pathogenic mediator of infectious and inflammatory diseases. HIV infection stimulates and dysregulates the immune system, leading to abnormal production of TNF-alpha. Despite its cytotoxic effect on some tumor cell lines, TNF-alpha functions as a growth stimulator for Kaposi's sarcoma (KS), a common malignancy in HIV-infected patients. However, signaling pathways linked to TNF-alpha-induced mitogenic responses are not well understood. We found that extracellular signal… CONTINUE READING
