    basic FUNCTION
  • involved in angiogenesis and may play a role in cell-matrix interactions
  • may modulate cellular adhesion to matrix
  • proteins
  • required for the expression of myogenic regulatory factors and differentiation of myoblasts into myotubes
  • having a role during myogenic differentiation that could be independent of TWEAK cytokine
  • TWEAK signaling regulates progenitor cell proliferation, differentiation, and survival in multiple organ systems (Hamill 2007)
  • its activation exerts different effects on neural progenitor cells and their progeny depending on the developmental stage of the cells (Hamill 2007)
  • TWEAK/TWEAKR may be important in regulating myocardial structural remodeling and function and may play a role in the pathogenesis of dilated cardiomyopathy (Jain 2009)
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell life, cell death/apoptosis
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS
