Tumor necrosis factor superfamily member 15 (TNFSF15) is also known Vascular endothelial growth inhibitor (VEGI) and TNF-like ligand 1A (TL1A). TNFSF15 is the receptor for TNFRSF25 and TNFRSF6B. It mediates activation of NF-kappa-B, inhibits vascular endothelial growth and angiogenesis (in vitro) and promotes activation of caspases and apoptosis.
