Chemical Antigens, CD40

Name Antigens, CD40
Equivalent Terms Antigen, CD40 | Antigen, CDw40 | CD40 Antigen | CD40 Antigens | CDw40 Antigen | Receptor, TNFRSF5 | TNFRSF5 Receptor | Tumor Necrosis Factor Receptor Superfamily, Member 5
Definition A member of the tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily with specificity for CD40 LIGAND. It is found on mature B-LYMPHOCYTES and some EPITHELIAL CELLS, lymphoid DENDRITIC CELLS. Evidence suggests that CD40-dependent activation of B-cells is important for generation of memory B-cells within the germinal centers. Mutations of the gene for CD40 antigen result in HYPER-IGM IMMUNODEFICIENCY SYNDROME, TYPE 3. Signaling of the receptor occurs through its association with TNF RECEPTOR-ASSOCIATED FACTORS.
