In this article Susan Mallett and Neil Barclay discuss the molecular and functional features of a new superfamily of membrane proteins defined by the presence of cysteine-rich motifs originally identified in the low-affinity nerve growth factor receptor. This superfamily includes two lymphocyte proteins of unknown function and two receptors for tumor necrosis factor.
