Locations in the PathwayBrowser

CD40 is a member of the Tumour Necrosis Factor receptor family and its ligand CD40L is a type II transmembrane protein of the TNF superfamily. The latter is expressed preferentially on T-cells and platelets. In the immune system, CD40-CD40L interaction affects some key processes such as immune cell activation, differentiation, proliferation, and apoptosis. CD40-CD40L interaction also upregulates costimulatory molecules (ICAM-1, VCAM-1, E-selectin, LFA-3, B7.1, B7.2, class II MHC, and CD40 itself).
