|Function||Cytokine that binds to TNFRSF11B/OPG and to TNFRSF11A/RANK. Osteoclast differentiation and activation factor. Augments the ability of dendritic cells to stimulate naive T-cell proliferation. May be an important regulator of interactions between T-cells and dendritic cells and may play a role in the regulation of the T-cell-dependent immune response. May also play an important role in enhanced bone-resorption in humoral hypercalcemia of malignancy (By similarity). Induces osteoclastogenesis by activating multiple signaling pathways in osteoclast precursor cells, chief among which is induction of long lasting oscillations in the intracellular concentration of Ca (2+) resulting in the activation of NFATC1, which translocates to the nucleus and induces osteoclast-specific gene transcription to allow differentiation of osteoclasts (PubMed:24039232). During osteoclast differentiation, in a TMEM64 and ATP2A2-dependent manner induces activation of CREB1 and mitochondrial ROS generation necessary for proper osteoclast generation (PubMed:23395171, PubMed:26644563).|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 1: Cell membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein Isoform 3: Cytoplasm.|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in thymus and lymph nodes, but not in non-lymphoid tissues and is abundantly expressed in T- cells but not in B-cells. A high level expression is also seen in the trabecular bone and lung|

RANK (receptor activator of NF-kB) is a member of the TNFR family, identified as a dendritic cell membrane protein. Murine sRANK Ligand is a soluble 19.4 kDa protein, comprising the TNF-like extracellular domain of RANKL (174 amino acids). The full length of RANK Ligand is 39.6 kDa containing 36 amino acids.
