This peptide corresponds to 16 amino acids near the carboxy terminus of human TNFRSF14.
PEP-0355 can be used as a blocking peptide with polyclonal antibody PA5-20236.
TNFRSF14 is a member of the TNF-receptor superfamily. TNFRSF14 was identified as a cellular mediator of herpes simplex virus (HSV) entry. Binding of HSV viral envelope glycoprotein D (gD) to TNFRSF14 has been shown to be part of the viral entry mechanism. The cytoplasmic region of TNFRSF14 was found to bind to several TRAF family members, which may mediate the signal transduction pathways that activate the immune response. Activation of the signal transduction pathway involving TNFRSF14 in T cells stimulates T cell proliferation and cytokine production, leading to inflammation and enhanced CTL-mediated tumor immunity, suggesting that these proteins may be useful as potential targets for controlling cellular immune responses. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described, but the full-length nature of some of these TNFRSF14 variants have not been determined.
