This receptor is expressed by activated, but not by resting, T and B cells. TRAF2 and TRAF5 can interact with this receptor, and mediate the signal transduction that leads to the activation of NF-kappaB. It is a positive regulator of apoptosis, and also has been shown to limit the proliferative potential of autoreactive CD8 effector T cells and protect the body against autoimmunity. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants of this gene encoding distinct isoforms have been reported.[1]

Clinical significance

CD30 is associated with anaplastic large cell lymphoma. It is expressed in embryonal carcinoma but not in seminoma and is thus a useful marker in distinguishing between these germ cell tumors.[2] CD30 and CD15 are also expressed on classical Hodgkin Lymphoma Reed-Sternberg cells.[3]

Cancer treatment

CD30 is the target of the FDA approved therapeutic Brentuximab Vedotin (Adcetris), designed and developed by Seattle Genetics. It is approved for use in:

  1. Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) (brentuximab vedotin) after failure of autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT)
  2. HL in patients who are not ASCT candidates after failure of at least 2 multiagent chemotherapy regimens
  3. Systemic anaplastic large cell lymphoma (sALCL) after failure of at least 1 multiagent chemotherapy regimen[4]


CD30 has been shown to interact with TRAF5,[5] TRAF1,[6] TRAF2[5][6] and TRAF3.[6]
