Proteomics (Chromosome): Chromosome 13
Function [CC]:Cytokine that binds to TNFRSF13B/TACI and TNFRSF17/BCMA. TNFSF13/APRIL binds to the same 2 receptors. Together, they form a 2 ligands -2 receptors pathway involved in the stimulation of B- and T-cell function and the regulation of humoral immunity. A third B-cell specific BAFF-receptor (BAFFR/BR3) promotes the survival of mature B-cells and the B-cell response. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10973284}.; Isoform 2 seems to inhibit isoform 1 secretion and bioactivity. {ECO:0000250}.; Isoform 3: Acts as a transcription factor for its own parent gene, in association with NF-kappa-B p50 subunit, at least in autoimmune and proliferative B-cell diseases. The presence of Delta4BAFF is essential for soluble BAFF release by IFNG/IFN-gamma-stimulated monocytes and for B-cell survival. It can directly or indirectly regulate the differential expression of a large number of genes involved in the innate immune response and the regulation of apoptosis. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10973284}.
Site:SITE 133 134 Cleavage.
Induction:Up-regulated by exposure to IFNG/IFN-gamma. Down-regulated by phorbol myristate acetate/ionomycin treatment.
Tissue Specificity:Abundantly expressed in peripheral blood Leukocytes and is specifically expressed in monocytes and macrophages. Also found in the spleen, lymph node, bone marrow, T-cells and dendritic cells. A lower expression seen in placenta, heart, lung, fetal liver, thymus, and pancreas. Isoform 2 is expressed in many myeloid cell lines. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:12867412}.
