Scientific Background:LTβR is a 75kDa type I transmembrane protein belonging to the TNF receptor family. It is 414 aa long and contains 4 cysteine-rich repeats in its extracellular domain. It is expressed on monocytes, fibroblasts, stromal and muscle cells. It is known to activate nuclear factor NF-κB, to interact with NIK and to induce cell death via TNF receptor-associated factor 3 (TRAF3). LTβR has two known ligands: LIGHT and LTα1β2. It has been shown to be involved in splenic architecture development, lymph node genesis and affinity maturation, as well as in the development of diabetes and colitis. It has been implicated in the induction of HIV replication and impairs prion replication in mice lacking follicular dendritic cells. Historical data has shown that LTβR inhibits human LIGHT- and LTα1β2-mediated effects, such as cytotoxic effects, on HT29 target cells.
Regulatory Status:RUO - Research Use Only
