Summary

Recombinant human soluble TRAIL/Apo2L is a 168 amino acid polypeptide (19.6 kDa), consisting of the TNF homologous portion of the extracellular domain of the full length TRAIL/Apo2L protein.

APPLICATION

Application Note

1. Determined by its ability to induce apoptotic cell death in TRAIL-sensitive U343MG cells. The expected ED₅₀ for this effect is 1.0-3.0 ng/ml.
2. Measured by its ability to induce apoptosis in LN-18 cells (human glioblastoma cells). The expected ED₅₀ for this effect is 0.8-2.0 ng/ml.

Background

The protein encoded by this gene is a cytokine that belongs to the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) ligand family. This protein preferentially induces apoptosis in transformed and tumor cells, but does not appear to kill normal cells although it is expressed at a significant level in most normal tissues. This protein binds to several members of TNF receptor superfamily including TNFRSF10A/TRAILR1, TNFRSF10B/TRAILR2, TNFRSF10C/TRAILR3, TNFRSF10D/TRAILR4, and possibly also to TNFRSF11B/OPG. The activity of this protein may be modulated by binding to the decoy receptors TNFRSF10C/TRAILR3, TNFRSF10D/TRAILR4, and TNFRSF11B/OPG that cannot induce apoptosis. The binding of this protein to its receptors has been shown to trigger the activation of MAPK8/JNK, caspase 8, and caspase 3. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2010]
