Signaling through the lymphotoxin beta receptor induces the death of some adenocarcinoma tumor lines

Surface lymphotoxin (LT) is a heteromeric complex of LT-alpha and LT-beta chains that binds to the LT-beta receptor (LT-beta-R), a member of the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) family of receptors. The biological function of this receptor-ligand system is poorly characterized. Since signaling through other members of this receptor family can induce cell death… CONTINUE READING
