LIGHT belongs to the TNF family of ligands, and can signal through the herpes virus entry mediator type A receptor (HVEM, TNFRSF14), LTβR, or bind to a decoy receptor, DcR3. It is expressed in splenocytes, activated PBL, CD8+ tumor infiltrating lymphocytes, granulocytes, and monocytes. LIGHT has the ability to activate NF-κB, to co-stimulate the activation of lymphocytes and to induce apoptosis in certain human tumor cells. The human LIGHT gene encodes for a 240 amino acid type II transmembrane protein containing a 37 amino acid cytoplasmic domain, a 21 amino acid transmembrane domain, and a 182 amino acid extracellular domain. Recombinant Human LIGHT has a calculated mass of 19.3 kDa, containing 177 amino acid residues. Due to glycosylation, LIGHT migrates between 20.0-22.5 kDa by SDS-PAGE under non-reducing conditions.
