Storage:  2-8 C in the dark.

Important: Sodium azide forms explosive compounds with heavy metals. These products contain <0.05% (w/w) azide which with repeated contact with lead and copper commonly found in plumbing drains may result in the buildup of shock sensitive compounds. Dispose in accordance with regulations from your institute.

TNF-like ligand 1A (TL1A), is also known as TNF superfamily member 15 (TNFSF15), and Vascular endothelial growth inhibitor (VEGI). TL1A is an anti-angiogenic protein. It belongs to tumor necrosis factor (ligand) superfamily. It is expressed in endothelial cells, but not in either B or T cells. Its expression is inducible by TNF-alpha and IL-1 alpha. It is a ligand for receptor TNFRSF25 (death receptor 3) and TNFRSF6B (decoy receptor 3). Through activating NF-κB and MAPK signaling pathways, it acts as an autocrine factor to induce apoptosis in endothelial cells. TNFSF15 polymorphisms has been found to be strongly associated with inflammatory bowel disease. Studies have found that TL1A levels in the serum, synovial fluid and synovial tissues were higher in rheumatoid arthritis and correlated with the severity of rheumatoid arthritis.
