Summaries for TNFSF11 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TNFSF11 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) cytokine family which is a ligand for osteoprotegerin and functions as a key factor for osteoclast differentiation and activation. This protein was shown to be a dentritic cell survival factor and is involved in the regulation of T cell-dependent immune response. T cell activation was reported to induce expression of this gene and lead to an increase of osteoclastogenesis and bone loss. This protein was shown to activate antiapoptotic kinase AKT/PKB through a signaling complex involving SRC kinase and tumor necrosis factor receptor-associated factor (TRAF) 6, which indicated this protein may have a role in the regulation of cell apoptosis. Targeted disruption of the related gene in mice led to severe osteopetrosis and a lack of osteoclasts. The deficient mice exhibited defects in early differentiation of T and B lymphocytes, and failed to form lobulo-alveolar mammary structures during pregnancy. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for TNFSF11 Gene

TNFSF11 (TNF Superfamily Member 11) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TNFSF11 include Osteopetrosis, Autosomal Recessive 2 and Autosomal Recessive Malignant Osteopetrosis. Among its related pathways are RANK Signaling in Osteoclasts and PEDF Induced Signaling. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include cytokine activity and tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily binding. An important paralog of this gene is TNFSF10.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TNFSF11 Gene

  • Cytokine that binds to TNFRSF11B/OPG and to TNFRSF11A/RANK. Osteoclast differentiation and activation factor. Augments the ability of dendritic cells to stimulate naive T-cell proliferation. May be an important regulator of interactions between T-cells and dendritic cells and may play a role in the regulation of the T-cell-dependent immune response. May also play an important role in enhanced bone-resorption in humoral hypercalcemia of malignancy (PubMed:22664871). Induces osteoclastogenesis by activating multiple signaling pathways in osteoclast precursor cells, chief among which is induction of long lasting oscillations in the intracellular concentration of Ca (2+) resulting in the activation of NFATC1, which translocates to the nucleus and induces osteoclast-specific gene transcription to allow differentiation of osteoclasts. During osteoclast differentiation, in a TMEM64 and ATP2A2-dependent manner induces activation of CREB1 and mitochondrial ROS generation necessary for proper osteoclast generation (By similarity).

TNF11_HUMAN
  • Osteopetrosis, autosomal recessive 2 (OPTB2) [MIM:259710]: A rare genetic disease characterized by abnormally dense bone, due to defective resorption of immature bone. Osteopetrosis occurs in two forms: a severe autosomal recessive form occurring in utero, infancy, or childhood, and a benign autosomal dominant form occurring in adolescence or adulthood. Recessive osteopetrosis commonly manifests in early infancy with macrocephaly, feeding difficulties, evolving blindness and deafness, bone marrow failure, severe anemia, and hepatosplenomegaly. Deafness and blindness are generally thought to represent effects of pressure on nerves. OPTB2 is characterized by paucity of osteoclasts, suggesting a molecular defect in osteoclast development. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17632511}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
