TNF-alpha Information for Pathologists
Also called cachectin. Initiates similar responses as lymphotoxin alpha. Secreted by macrophages and lipopolysaccharides or macrophage activating agents. Binds to 55kDa receptor on many cells throughout body. Has many biologic activities; initiate signals for cell proliferation and apoptosis; required for normal development and function of immune system; suppresses expression of lipoprotein lipase and anabolic enzymes in fat. In large boluses, modifies coagulation properties of endothelial cells, activates neutrophils, induces release of inflammatory cytokines (IL-1), causing cardiovascular collapse. In small amounts, causes symptoms of inflammatory response of bone resorption, fever, anemia, wasting. Both triggers apoptosis and activates NFKB which blocks apoptosis. TNF and IL-1 react with hypothalamic receptors, leading to stimulation of prostaglandin and leukotriene mediated pathways that reset brains thermoregulatory center.
