TNFSF18 [ENSP00000385470]

Tumor necrosis factor (ligand) superfamily, member 18; Cytokine that binds to TNFRSF18/AITR/GITR. Regulates T- cell responses. Can function as costimulator and lower the threshold for T-cell activation and T-cell proliferation. Important for interactions between activated T-lymphocytes and endothelial cells. Mediates activation of NF-kappa-B. Triggers increased phosphorylation of STAT1 and up-regulates expression of VCAM1 and ICAM1. Promotes leukocyte adhesion to endothelial cells. Regulates migration of monocytes from the splenic reservoir to sites of inflammation (By similarity); Belongs to the tumor necrosis factor family.
