|Synonyms||AITRL, GITRL, TL6|
|Function||Cytokine that binds to TNFRSF18/AITR/GITR. Regulates T- cell responses. Can function as costimulator and lower the threshold for T-cell activation and T-cell proliferation. Important for interactions between activated T-lymphocytes and endothelial cells. Mediates activation of NF-kappa-B. Triggers increased phosphorylation of STAT1 and up-regulates expression of VCAM1 and ICAM1 (PubMed:23892569). Promotes leukocyte adhesion to endothelial cells (PubMed:23892569). Regulates migration of monocytes from the splenic reservoir to sites of inflammation (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Expressed at high levels in the small intestine, ovary, testis, kidney and endothelial cells|

The protein encoded by this gene is a cytokine thatbelongs to the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) ligand family. Thiscytokine is a ligand for receptor TNFRSF18/AITR/GITR. It has beenshown to modulate T lymphocyte survival in peripheral tissues. Thiscytokine is also found to be expressed in endothelial cells, and isthought to be important for interaction between T lymphocytes andendothelial cells.
