Centenary Institute of Cancer Medicine and Cell Biology, Newtown, Australia
J Immunol 162:3504-11. 1999..Thus, the enhanced susceptibility of TNF-/- is not compensated for by the presence of LT alpha, and the critical role of TNF is not in the activation of T cells and macrophages but in the local organization of granulomas...
- Challenging cytokine redundancy: inflammatory cell movement and clinical course of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis are normal in lymphotoxin-deficient, but not tumor necrosis factor-deficient, miceD Sean Riminton

J Exp Med 187:1517-28. 1998..We conclude from these studies that TNF and LT are functionally distinct cytokines in vivo, and despite sharing common receptors, show no redundancy of function nor mutual compensation...

- Induction of intratumoral tumor necrosis factor (TNF) synthesis and hemorrhagic necrosis by 5,6-dimethylxanthenone-4-acetic acid (DMXAA) in TNF knockout miceL M Ching
Auckland Cancer Society Research Centre, University of Auckland, New Zealand
Cancer Res 59:3304-7. 1999..TNF protein was undetectable in liver and spleen tissue from TNF knockout mice, but was evident in tissue from TNF-positive mice. These results confirm that DMXAA has the novel ability of inducing tumors to synthesize TNF in situ...

Interdisziplinäres Zentrum für Klinische Forschung der Universität Erlangen Nürnberg, D 91054 Erlangen, Germany
J Exp Med 191:89-96. 2000..We conclude that TNF is necessary for the full manifestation of the lymphoproliferative disorder, in particular playing a critical role in lymphoaccumulation. Most importantly, absence of TNF protects gld mice against premature death...
