Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFA) exists in two biologically active forms, a transmembrane TNF-alpha (tmTNFA) and secretory TNF-alpha (sTNFA). tmTNFA is expressed as a functional 26kDa homotrimer transmembrane protein, which can be cleaved by a metalloproteinase TNFA-converting enzyme (TACE or ADAM17) to release the extracellular C-terminal portion with 17kDa, sTNFA. Tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily member 1B (TNFRSF1B or hereafter referred as TNFR2) preferentially binds with membrane integrated TNFA (Grell et al. 1995) and can activate the noncanonical NF-kB pathway (Rauert et al. 2010) as well as canonical NF-kB pathway (Marchetti et al. 2004).
