TNF-α, the prototypical member of the TNF protein superfamily, is a homotrimeric type-II membrane protein (1,2). Membrane-bound TNF-α is cleaved by the metalloprotease TACE/ADAM17 to generate a soluble homotrimer (2). Both membrane and soluble forms of TNF-α are biologically active. TNF-α is produced by a variety of immune cells including T cells, B cells, NK cells, and macrophages (1). Cellular response to TNF-α is mediated through interaction with receptors TNF-R1 and TNF-R2 and results in activation of pathways that favor both cell survival and apoptosis depending on the cell type and biological context. Activation of kinase pathways (including JNK, Erk1/2, p38 MAPK, and NF-κB) promotes the survival of cells, while TNF-α-mediated activation of caspase-8 leads to programmed cell death (1,2). TNF-α plays a key regulatory role in inflammation and host defense against bacterial infection, notably Mycobacterium tuberculosis (3).

TNF-α是典型的TNF家族成员, 是II型的同源三聚体膜蛋白(1,2)。细胞膜锚定的TNF-α通过金属蛋白酶 TACE/ADAM17的剪切,形成可溶性的同型三聚体(2)。膜锚定和可溶性两种形式都有生物活性。TNF-α可由很多种类的细胞产生,包括T细胞、B细胞、巨噬细胞和NK细胞(1)。TNF-α的细胞内应答是通过与 TNF-R1 和 TNF-R2 两种受体互作而介导的,从而激活细胞存活和细胞凋亡两个截然相反地过程,这两个过程的发生主要决定于细胞的类型和生物学环境。某些激酶激活的通路(包括JNK、Erk (p44/42)、p38 MAPK 和 NF-κB) 可促进细胞的存活,然而TNF-α介导的对caspase-8的活化导致了程序性的细胞死亡(1,2)。TNF-α在炎症反应和宿主抵抗细菌入侵的过程特别是针对结核分枝杆菌感染发挥了重要的调控作用(3)。
