The extracellular domain of human TNF-α (aa 85-233) is fused at the N-terminus to mouse ACRP30headless (aa 18-111) and a FLAG-tag.

Tumor necrosis factor (TNF, cachexin or cachectin and formerly known as tumor necrosis factor-α) is a cytokine involved in systemic inflammation and is a member of a group of cytokines that stimulate the acute phase reaction. Multimeric TNF-α is a high activity construct in which two trimeric TNF-α ligands are artificially linked via the collagen domain of mouse ACRP30 (adiponectin, Adipoq). The receptor TNF-R1 is activated by both the membrane-bound and soluble trimeric forms of TNF-α, whereas the receptor TNF-R2 only responds to the membrane-bound form of TNF-α. Since Multimeric TNF-α mimics the membrane-bound form (forms oligomers higher than trimer), it is the only TNF-α protein that can activate the TNF-R2. For TNF-R1 activation, either "regular" recombinant TNF-α or Multimeric TNF-α can be used.
