TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) is expressed in many tissues including spleen, lung and prostate (Wiley et al, 1995) and is capable of inducing apoptosis in a tumour specific manner (Walczak et al, 1997). Apoptosis is initiated by the binding of the two death receptors DR4 and DR5 which initiate cell death signalling via the caspase cascade. There are however two decoy receptors DcR1 and DcR2 which competitively bind to CD253 but do not initiate apoptosis (Allen and El-Deiry, 2012).
A potential use for TRAIL as an anti-tumor therapeutic agent has been identified in numerous studies, demonstrating tumoricidal activity in approximately two thirds of tumor cell lines tested (Griffith et al, 1999).
Recombinant human CD253 is the immunogen used to produce Rabbit anti human CD253 (AHP1215).
