LTB (Lymphotoxin Beta) is a Protein Coding gene. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Lymphotoxin beta is a type II membrane protein of the TNF family. It anchors lymphotoxin-alpha to the cell surface through heterotrimer formation. Heat-labile enterotoxin B subunit (LTB) of enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) is both a strong mucosal adjuvant and immunogen. It is a subunit vaccine candidate to be used against ETEC-induced diarrhea. It has already been expressed in several bacterial and plant systems.LTB provokes a systemic immune response and exerts adjuvant effects on mucosal immune responses to unrelated antigens. Diseases associated with LTB include Synovitis and Myasthenic Syndrome, Congenital, 2C, Associated With Acetylcholine Receptor Deficiency.
