DR4 peptide

Cat No. GTX28447

Application Blocking
Species Human
APPLICATION

Application Note

The peptide is used for blocking the activity of DR4 (NT) (GTX28415). Incubatingthe peptide with equal volume of antibody for 30 min at 37ºC usually completely blocks theantibody activity in Western blotting.

Background

Apoptosis, or programmed cell death, occurs during normal cellular differentiation and development of multicellular organisms. Apoptosis is induced by certain cytokines including TNF and Fas ligand of the TNF family through their death domain containing receptors, TNFR1 and Fas. A novel cell death receptor was recently identified and designated DR4 (for death receptor 4). The ligand for this novel death receptor has been identified and termed TRAIL, which is a new member in the TNF family. DR4 is also called TRAIL receptor 1(TRAIL R1). DR4 is expressed in most of human tissues including spleen, peripheral blood leukocytes, small intestine and thymus. Like TNFR1, Fas and DR3, DR4 mediates apoptosis and NF kB activation in many tissues and cells.
