The molecular architecture of the TNF superfamily.
TLDR
Protein folds reminiscent of the THD and CRD are also found in other protein families, raising the possibility that the mode of interaction between TNF and TNF receptors might be conserved in other contexts. Expand
Clinical targeting of the TNF and TNFR superfamilies
TLDR
This Review focuses on the biologics that are currently in clinical trials for immune-related diseases and other syndromes, discusses the successes and failures to date as well as the expanding therapeutic potential of modulating the activity of this superfamily of molecules. Expand
TRAIL and immunity: more than a license to kill tumor cells
TLDR
This News and Commentary will focus on the only recently recognized and appreciated role of TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) in regulating various physiological and pathophysiological processes involving immune cells. Expand
Signalling pathways of the TNF superfamily: a double-edged sword
  • B. Aggarwal
  • Medicine, Biology
  • Nature Reviews Immunology
  • 2003
TLDR
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. Expand
Biology of the TRANCE axis.
TLDR
The recently identified TNF superfamily cytokine, TRANCE (RANKL/OPGL/ODF/TNFSF11), which interacts with two receptors-one functional, TRance-R (Rank/TNFRSF11A), and one decoy, OPG (TNF RSF11B)-is a survival factor for activated dendritic cells, and may also be important for the maintenance of immune tolerance. Expand
Overview of TNF superfamily: a chest full of potential therapeutic targets.
  • I. Grewal
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Advances in experimental medicine and biology
  • 2009
TLDR
This chapter will give overview of TNF superfamily for exploitation for therapeutic use in humans, featuring TNF and TNF agonistic molecules, which show promise for several therapeutic applications, including cancer, infectious disease, transplantation and autoimmunity. Expand
Prions, cytokines, and chemokines: a meeting in lymphoid organs.
TLDR
This work is supported by a career development award of the Foundation for Research at the Medical Faculty, University of Zurich, a generous educational grant from the Catello family, and a grant of the Verein zur Forderung des akademischen Nachwuchses. Expand
A co-evolution perspective of the TNFSF and TNFRSF families in the immune system.
TLDR
Evidence is offered that the divergence of the TNFSF and TNFRSF families paralleled the emergence of the adaptive immune system, at least partly through en bloc duplication. Expand
TNF Decoy Receptors Encoded by Poxviruses
Tumour necrosis factor (TNF) is an inflammatory cytokine produced in response to viral infections that promotes the recruitment and activation of leukocytes to sites of infection. This TNF-based hostExpand
Small-molecule inhibitors of the interaction between TNF and TNFR.
TLDR
The various strategies used in obtaining small-molecule, nonpeptide, inhibitors of the TNF-TNF receptor interaction through disruption of theTNF trimer or direct inhibition of the H2O receptor interaction are presented here. Expand

Signaling by the TNF receptor superfamily and T cell homeostasis.
TLDR
The identification of the PLAD and its role in mediating pre-ligand complex formation and receptor function may be exploited as a novel therapeutic target in diseases that involves TNF- and TNFR-like ligand-receptor pairs. Expand
The multifaceted role of Fas signaling in immune cell homeostasis and autoimmunity
TLDR
It is now recognized that Fas (also known as CD95 or Apo-1) has distinct functions in the life and death of different cell types in the immune system and can also facilitate organ-specific immunopathology. Expand
Lymphocyte Survival--Ignorance Is BLys
TLDR
The receptors BCMA and TACI and their ligands BAFF/BLys and APRIL, respectively, are important for B lymphocyte survival, proliferation, and differentiation. Expand
Impaired on/off regulation of TNF biosynthesis in mice lacking TNF AU-rich elements: implications for joint and gut-associated immunopathologies.
TLDR
Development of two specific pathologies in mutant mice, i.e., chronic inflammatory arthritis and Crohn's-like inflammatory bowel disease, suggests that defective function of ARE may be etiopathogenic for the development of analogous human pathologies. Expand
The structural basis for the recognition of diverse receptor sequences by TRAF2.
TLDR
Crystal structures of the TRAF domain of human TRAF2 in complex with peptides from the TNFR family members CD40, CD30, Ox40, 4-1BB, and the EBV oncoprotein LMP1 revealed a conserved binding mode. Expand
Mice lacking the tumour necrosis factor receptor 1 are resistant to IMF-mediated toxicity but highly susceptible to infection by Listeria monocytogenes
TLDR
It is reported here that mice homozygous for a disrupted Tnfr l allele (Tnfr1 0) are resistant to the lethal effect of low doses of lipopolysaccharide after sensitization with D-galactosamine, but remain sensitive to high doses oflipopoly Saccharide. Expand
TNFRSF1A mutations and autoinflammatory syndromes.
TLDR
Preliminary experience with recombinant p75 TNFR-Fc fusion protein in the treatment of TRAPS has been favorable, and one likely mechanism of inflammation in TRAPS is the impaired cleavage of TNFRSF1A ectodomain upon cellular activation, with diminished shedding of the potentially antagonistic soluble receptor. Expand
T cell life and death signalling via TNF-receptor family members.
TLDR
An effective immune response requires the rapid and accurate mobilisation of millions of effector cells in an antigen driven fashion, and how this balance is maintained and onto the consequences for disease if the homeostatic mechanisms become disturbed is studied. Expand
TNF receptor associated factors in cytokine signaling.
TLDR
Six human and murine TRAFs as well as a TRAF protein from C. elegans have been molecularly cloned and some of the activities of the individual TRAF family members may be redundant although transgenic knockout animal models have already shown that crucial signaling pathways for single TRAF molecules in vivo can be defined. Expand
TRAF2 deficiency results in hyperactivity of certain TNFR1 signals and impairment of CD40-mediated responses.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that TRAF2-deficient macrophages produce increased amounts of nitric oxide and TNF in response to TNF stimulation, and this data demonstrate two important roles of TRAf2, one as a negative regulator of certain TNFR1 signals and the other as a positive mediator of CD40 signaling.
