Abstract

Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) can trigger increases in membrane conductance of mammalian cells in a receptor-independent manner via its lectin-like domain. A lectin-deficient TNF mutant, lacking this activity, was able to bind to artificial liposomes in a pH-dependent manner, but not to insert into the bilayer, just like wild type TNF. A peptide mimicking the lectin-like domain, which can still trigger increases in membrane currents in cells, failed to interact with liposomes. Thus, the capacity of TNF to trigger increases in membrane conductance in mammalian cells does not correlate with its ability to interact with membranes, suggesting that the cytokine does not form channels itself, but rather interacts with endogenous ion channels or with plasma membrane proteins that are coupled to ion channels.
