Term Detail
MP term:increased tumor necrosis factor secretion
Synonym: increased cachectin secretion
Synonym: increased TNFA secretion
Synonym: increased TNF secretion
Synonym: increased tumor necrosis factor alpha secretion
MP id: MP:0008560
Definition: increase in the production or release of a serum glycoprotein produced by activated macrophages and NK cells and involved in initiating local inflammatory responses, particularly by its action on the endothelium of local blood vessels; its actions result in increased vascular permeability and induction of expression of adhesion molecules on the endothelium
