Tumor Necrosis Factor Receptor Superfamily, Member 1B (TNFRSF1B)
CD120B; P75; TBPII; TNF-R-II; TNF-R75; TNFBR; TNFR2; TNFR80; P75tnfr; Tumor necrosis factor receptor 2; p80 TNF-alpha receptor; Etanercept
is a human gene. The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the Tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily, which also contains TNFRSF1A. The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the TNF-receptor superfamily. This protein and TNF-receptor 1 form a heterocomplex that mediates the recruitment of two anti-apoptotic proteins, c-IAP1 and c-IAP2, which possess E3 ubiquitin ligase activity. The function of IAPs in TNF-receptor signalling is unknown, however, c-IAP1 is thought to potentiate TNF-induced apoptosis by the ubiquitination and degradation of TNF-receptor-associated factor 2, which mediates anti-apoptotic signals. Knockout studies in mice also suggest a role of this protein in protecting neurons from apoptosis by stimulating antioxidative pathways.
