Immunopharmacology Comments
Expressed by activated T and B cells. Interacts with TRAF2 and TRAF5 to elicit downstream signalling events (NF-κB activation). CD30 may protect against autoimmunity by limiting the proliferative potential of autoreactive CD8 effector T cells. CD30 is the target of the approved anti-lymphoma monoclonal antibody drug brentuximab vedotin.
