55504Q9NS68TNFRSF19TAJ; TROY; TAJ-alphatumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily, member 19
[more aliases]
FunctionThe protein encoded by this gene is a member of the TNF-receptor superfamily. This receptor is highly expressed during embryonic development. It has been shown to interact with TRAF family members, and to activate JNK signaling pathway when overexpressed in cells. This receptor is capable of inducing apoptosis by a caspase-independent mechanism, and it is thought to play an essential role in embryonic development. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been described.
