TNF (Tumor Necrosis Factor), also known as TNFα, is a cytokine that can directly kill tumor cells without obvious cytotoxicity to normal cells and is a cell signaling protein involved in systemic inflammation and is one of the cytokines that make up the acute phase reaction.
The primary role of TNF signaling pathway is in the regulation of immune cells. TNF, being an endogenous pyrogen, is able to induce fever, apoptotic cell death, cachexia, inflammation and to inhibit tumorigenesis and viral replication and respond to sepsis via IL1 & IL6 producing cells.
As the figure shows, TNF can bind two receptors, TNFR1 (TNF receptor type 1) and TNFR2 (TNF receptor type 2). TNFR1 is expressed in most tissues, and can be fully activated by both the membrane-bound and soluble trimeric forms of TNF, whereas TNFR2 is found typically in cells of the immune system, and respond to the membrane-bound form of the TNF homotrimer.
As most information regarding TNF signaling is derived from TNFR1, the role of TNFR2 is likely underestimated. Upon binding, TNF triggers the activation of numerous pathways including the NFkB and MAPK pathway.
