Receptor activator of NF-kB (RANK) is a recently cloned member of the TNFR superfamily with no significant homology to other members of this family. RANK ligand  (RANKL/TRANCE/ OPGL) (mAbs to RANKL is also available from Imgenex, Cat # IMG-133) binds to RANK on dendritic cells, upregulates the expression of anti-apoptotic protein BcL-XL suggesting a role in dendritic cell survival. The cytoplasmic domain of RANK interacts with TRAF2, TRAF5 and TRAF6. Overexpression of RANK activates NF-kB and c-Jun-terminal kinase (JNK) pathway. Recent studies have shown that RANK interaction with TRAF6 activates NF-kB, whereas JNK activation is mediated through binding of RANK to TRAF2.

A synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acid residues 603-613 of human RANK. Genbank accession number: NP_003830.
