Identification

Name
Trefoil Factor 2
Accession Number
DB15750
Description

The trefoil factor 2 (TFF2) peptide is a low-molecular weight protein and one of the three trefoil-motif-containing proteins. They are expressed predominantly in gastric tissues with the source for them being predominantly stromal cells, although expression of TFF2 mRNA transcripts also occurs with tissue macrophages. The peptides themselves are most abundant in mucous cells of the gastric mucosa with TFF2 being detected in mucous layers over the tissue.

Mechanism of action

TFF2 acts as a regulator of mucosal tissue repair and is a part of epithelial defences, promoting restitution. TFF2 is upregulated in gastric tissue with Helicobacter infections and gastric tissues with inflammatory conditions; its anti-inflammatory actions allow it to down-regulate gastric and colonic inflammation. It has also been proposed that TFF2 is involved with some aspect of immune function. Although there are reports of a number of potential biological roles for TFF, currently, the exact mechanism of action is yet to be elucidated as cell surface receptors for TFFs have not yet been identified. However, a study proposes TFF2 to have a role in the negative regulation of interleukin 1 (IL-1) receptor-mediated signalling.
