Background: TRANCE/TNFSF11/RANK L
TNF-related activation-induced cytokine (TRANCE; also RANK L, OPGL, and ODF) is a 35 kDa (predicted) type II transmembrane glycoprotein and member of the TNF cytokine family. Human TRANCE is 317 amino acids (aa) in length and contains a 47 aa cytoplasmic region, a 21 aa transmembrane region, and a 249 extracellular domain (ECD), which contains two potential sites of N-linked glycosylation. Splicing variants produce three isoforms for human TRANCE. Isoform 1 is the standard form. In isoform 2, aa corresponding to 1-73 in isoform 1 are missing. In isoform 3, aa 1-47 are missing. Human TRANCE ECD is 83% identical to mouse TRANCE ECD. TRANCE is expressed highest in the peripheral lymph nodes and weaker in the spleen, peripheral blood leukocytes, bone marrow, heart, placenta, skeletal muscle, stomach, and thyroid. TRANCE plays a role in osteoclast differentiation and activation.
