TNF-R1 Signaling: A Beautiful Pathway

  title={TNF-R1 Signaling: A Beautiful Pathway},
  author={Guoqing Chen and David Norman Van Goeddel},
  pages={1634 - 1635}
Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) is a major mediator of apoptosis as well as inflammation and immunity, and it has been implicated in the pathogenesis of a wide spectrum of human diseases, including sepsis, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and inflammatory bowel diseases. The interaction of TNF with TNF receptor–1 (TNF-R1) activates several signal transduction pathways. A common feature of each pathway is the TNF-induced formation of a multiprotein signaling…

Two different tumour-necrosis factors, first isolated in 1984, were found to be cytotoxic to tumour cells and to induce tumour regression in mice, and blockers of TNF have been approved for human use in treating TNF-linked autoimmune diseases.

TNF signaling: key protocols.

This chapter describes theAnalysis of the TNF receptor signaling complex by immunoprecipitation (IP), the activation of different MAP kinases by Western blot, the analysis of transcription factor activation by either electrophoretic mobility-shift assay (EMSA) or reporter assay, and theanalysis of TNF-induced genes by chromatin IP (ChIP).

Regulation and dysregulation of tumor necrosis factor receptor-1.

Amelioration of inflammatory arthritis by targeting the pre-ligand assembly domain of tumor necrosis factor receptors

It is found that soluble versions of PLAD, especially those derived from P60, block the biochemical effects of TNF-α in vitro and potently inhibit arthritis in animal models, suggesting that targeting the PLAD may have clinical value in the treatment of human arthritis.

The role of TRADD in death receptor signaling

This review summarizes the recent advances in the field of DR signaling and in particular the role of TRADD.

Regulation of TNFR1 and CD95 signalling by receptor compartmentalization

A role for receptor internalization and endosomal trafficking in selectively transmitting the signals that lead either to apoptosis or to the survival of the cell is revealed.

This work attempts to review the existing knowledge on the involvement of ROS in death receptor signaling using TNFα‐TNFR1 as the model system, specifically addressing the involved of intracellular ROS in TNF α‐induced cell death and in T NFα‐induced activation of NF‐κB and JNK and their crosstalk.

TNF-α, a good or bad factor in hematological diseases?

The positive or negative role of TNF-α in hematological malignancies or diseases with a malignant tendency is evaluated and several studies have shown that inflammatory cytokines play an important role in the onset and progress of these diseases.



Anti-TNF alpha therapy of rheumatoid arthritis: what have we learned?

Clinical investigations in which the activity of TNF alpha in RA patients was blocked with intravenously administered infliximab, a chimeric anti-TNF alpha monoclonal antibody (mAB), has provided evidence that TNF regulates IL-6, IL-8, MCP-1, and VEGF production, recruitment of immune and inflammatory cells into joints, angiogenesis, and reduction of blood levels of matrix metalloproteinases-1 and -3.
