Gene: TNF (tumor necrosis factor) Homo sapiens
Symbol: TNF
Name: tumor necrosis factor
CRRD ID: 1344192
Description: Exhibits several functions, including identical protein binding activity; protease binding activity; and signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of macromolecule metabolic process; positive regulation of cell population proliferation; and positive regulation of macromolecule metabolic process. Localizes to several cellular components, including cell surface; extracellular space; and membrane raft. Implicated in several diseases, including artery disease (multiple); autoimmune disease (multiple); eye disease (multiple); lung disease (multiple); and skin disease (multiple). Biomarker of several diseases, including anemia (multiple); autoimmune disease (multiple); eye disease (multiple); kidney disease (multiple); and lung disease (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
