TNFL9 Cytokine that binds to TNFRSF9. Induces the proliferation of activated peripheral blood T-cells. May have a role in activation-induced cell death (AICD). May play a role in cognate interactions between T-cells and B-cells/macrophages. Belongs to the tumor necrosis factor family. Expressed in brain, placenta, lung, skeletal muscle and kidney. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
