Introductory Words About TWEAK/Fn14
In the past decade, the cytokine tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-like weak inducer of apoptosis (TWEAK) and its receptor FGF-inducible molecule-14 (Fn14) have emerged as a ligand/receptor pair of the TNF superfamily that is prominently featured in the physiological and patho-physiological remodeling of tissues [1, 2].
