    text type II transmembrane protein
    basic FUNCTION
  • inducing apoptosis
  • stimulating the proliferation of T cells and functioning as a costimulatory factor for the activation of lymphoid cells
  • mediated adhesion of platelets to endothelium significantly, occurring both under static and dynamic flow conditions
  • platelet-associated and involved in adhesion of platelets to endothelium while soluble form induces a pro-inflammatory state in vascular endothelial cells
  • may thus be implicated in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and acute coronary syndrome, as evidenced by serum levels
  • role for VEGFA and TNFSF14 in macrophage apoptosis during wound healing, an event critical in the resolution of inflammation
  • important mediator in intestinal inflammation
  • might be a critical cytokine involved in the development of autoimmune inflammatory diseases
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell life, cell death/apoptosis
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS
    PATHWAY
    metabolism
    signaling
    a component
  • forms a membrane-anchored homotrimeric complex that is capable of binding to both lymphotoxin-B receptor (LTbR) and herpes simplex virus entry mediator
  • INTERACTION
    DNA
    RNA
    small molecule
    protein
  • interacting with TRAF2 and LTBR (TRAF2, an important
  • effector molecule of TNF signaling, plays a critical, nonredundant role in TNFSF14-LTBR signaling)
  • cell & other
    REGULATION
    induced by VEGFA (increases the expression of tumor necrosis factor superfamily member 14 (TNFSF14/LIGHT) in macrophages)
