TNF-like ligand 1A (TL1A)-Responsive Luciferase Reporter Jurkat Cell Line is a TL1A-responsive DR3/NF-kB luciferase reporter Jurkat cell line expressing firefly luciferase under the control of an NF-kB response element, and with stable expression of human DR3 (death receptor 3; TNFRSF25; NM_003790.3). Expression of the firefly luciferase reporter is driven by NF-kB response elements located upstream of the minimal TATA promoter. Activation of the NF-kB signaling pathway by the DR3 ligand TL1A (TNF-like Protein 1A; TNFSF15) can be monitored by measuring luciferase activity. 

This cell line has been validated to be responsive to TL1A and TNF-α stimulation. TL1A stimulation was blocked by the neutralizing anti-TL1A antibody (#101729) and DcR3 (decoy receptor 3).

TNF-like ligand 1A (TL1A, also known as Vascular endothelial growth inhibitor, VEGI or TNFSF15) is an anti-angiogenic cytokine. It is an important mediator of inflammation, participating in innate and adaptive immune homeostasis through binding to its receptor, DR3 (death receptor 3), activating downstream signaling. Numerous studies showed that soluble TL1A can be detected in the serum of patients with T-cell mediated autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and inflammatory bowel disease. In addition, recent clinical studies suggested that anti-TL1A antibody treatment is a promising therapeutic approach in inflammatory and auto-immune disorders.
