Recombinant human CD253 is a 19.6 kDa protein comprised of 168 amino acids which correspond to the TNF-homologous region of the extracellular domain of human TRAIL/ApoL2.

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 tumor specific manner (Walczak et al, 1997). Apoptosis is initiated by the binding of the two death receptors DR4 and DR5 which initiate cell death signaling 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, 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).

Where this protein has not been tested for use in a particular technique this does not necessarily exclude its use in such procedures. Suggested working dilutions are given as a guide only. It is recommended that the user titrates the protein for use in their own system using appropriate positive/negative controls.
Recombinant human CD253 may be used as a standard for ELISA applications with anti human CD253 (purified)
Western Blotting
Recombinant human CD253 may be used as the positive control for western blotting applications with anti human CD253 (purified)
