TWEAK and Fn14 are members of the TNF ligand and receptor super-families. Here we report how human and Xenopus Fn14 share a common tertiary fold and binding interface to TWEAK, despite the low sequence homology. We characterize the determinants for Fn14 binding to human TWEAK and discuss how cysteine-rich domains of TNF receptor superfamily have evolved over time.
