Primary Drug Target
NameTumor necrosis factor alpha
Gene NameTNF
SynonymsTumor necrosis factor precursor; TNF-alpha; Tumor necrosis factor ligand superfamily member 2; TNF-a; Cachectin
Specific FunctionCytokine that binds to TNFRSF1A/TNFR1 and TNFRSF1B/TNFBR. It is mainly secreted by macrophages and can induce cell death of certain tumor cell lines. It is potent pyrogen causing fever by direct action or by stimulation of interleukin 1 secretion and is implicated in the induction of cachexia, Under certain conditions it can stimulate cell proliferation and induce cell differentiation
