Lymphotoxin alpha

Lymphotoxin-alpha, TNF-beta, LTA
The encoded protein, a member of the tumor necrosis factor family, is a cytokine produced by lymphocytes. The protein is highly inducible, secreted, and forms heterotrimers with lymphotoxin-beta which anchor lymphotoxin-alpha to the cell surface. This protein also mediates a large variety of inflammatory, immunostimulatory, and antiviral responses, is involved in the formation of secondary lymphoid organs during development and plays a role in apoptosis. Genetic variations in this gene are associated with susceptibility to leprosy type 4 and psoriatic arthritis.[provided by RefSeq, Apr 2009] (from NCBI)

Staphylococcal LTA-induced miR-143 inhibits Propionibacterium acnes-mediated inflammatory response in skin.
New
Lai et al., Shanghai, China. In J Invest Dermatol, Jan 2016
Staphylococcal LTA activated TLR2 to induce miR-143 in keratinocytes, and miR-143, in turn, directly targeted 3' UTR of TLR2 to decrease the stability of TLR2 mRNA and then decreased TLR2 protein, thus inhibiting P. acnes-induced pro-inflammatory cytokines.

Review
New
Sahl et al., Wuppertal, Germany. In Biochim Biophys Acta, Nov 2015
Typically, AMPs are cationic and amphiphilic and first contacts with target microbes involve interactions with negatively charged components of the cell envelope such as lipopolysaccharide (LPS), and wall- or lipoteichoic acids (WTA, LTA).
