The tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-like domains are found in both TNF and C1q protein families. Structurally these domains self-associate to make a compact bell-shaped homotrimer, each monomer being composed of an anti-parallel beta-sheet sandwich with a jellyroll topology. Both TNF and C1q family members can be expressed as soluble plasma proteins or as type II membrane-bound proteins.

TNF family members bind extracellularly to cysteine-rich receptors, thereby inducing a clustering of the receptors, which subsequently triggers the intracellular apoptotic cascade. The TNF proteins are important mediators in inflammation, immune responses and cytotoxicity through their interaction with the TNF-R55 and the TNF-R75 cell-surface receptors [PubMed9442056]. Other TNF family members include the CD40 ligand (C-terminal TNF-like domain) which is involved in the immune response via the CD40 receptor [PubMed8589998], TRAIL which selectively induces apoptosis in tumour cells via DR4 and DR5 receptors [PubMed10651627], the RANK ligand which triggers osteoclastogenesis via the RANK receptor [PubMed11733492], and TALL-1 (soluble domain) which is involved in the immune response via the TACI, BCMA, and BAFF-R receptors [PubMed11862220].

C1q proteins also contain TNF-like domains. C1q family members include the serum protein ACRP30 (C-terminal TNF-like domain) which may be involved in energy homeostasis and obesity, and X-NC1 (C-terminal TNF-like domain) which is crucial for collagen X assembly in bone tissue [PubMed11839302].

Browse genome assignments for this superfamily. The SUPERFAMILY hidden Markov model library has been used to carry out SCOP domain assignments to all genomes at the superfamily level.

Alignments of sequences to 39 models in this superfamily are available by clicking on the 'Alignments' icon above. PDB sequences less than 40% identical are shown by default, but any other sequence(s) may be aligned. Select PDB sequences, genome sequences, or paste in or upload your own sequences.

Browse and view proteins in genomes which have different domain combinations including a TNF-like domain.

Examine the distribution of domain superfamilies, or families, across the major taxonomic kingdoms or genomes within a kingdom. This gives an immediate impression of how superfamilies, or families, are restricted to certain kingdoms of life.

Explore domain occurrence network where nodes represent genomes and edges are domain architectures (shared between genomes) containing the superfamily of interest.

There are 39 hidden Markov models representing the TNF-like superfamily. Information on how the models are built, and plots showing hydrophobicity, match emmission probabilities and insertion/deletion probabilities can be inspected.
