Tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily member 12A also known as the TWEAK receptor (TWEAKR) is a protein that in humans is encoded by the TNFRSF12A gene.[5][6][7]

Clinical significance[edit]

NFAT1 regulates the expression of TWEAKR (this protein) and its ligand TWEAK with lipocalin 2 to increase breast cancer cell invasion.[8]
