Analysis Note

Induces cytotoxicity in mouse L-929 cells in the presence of actinomycin D.

Physical form

Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in phosphate buffered saline containing 0.5 mg bovine serum albumin.


TRAIL human was used to induce cytotoxicity in A549, a human lung carcinoma cell line.

Biochem/physiol Actions

TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) is a type II transmembrane protein that belongs to TNF family. It is present in both soluble as well as membrane-bound form and can induce rapid apoptosis of various transformed cell lines but not the normal cells. Additionally, the product can also induces apoptotic cell death in TRAIL-sensitive U343MGcells.

Type II transmembrane protein of the TNF superfamily. Ligand for apoptosis-inducing death receptors DR4 and DR5, decoy receptors DcR1 and DcR2, and osteoprotegerin. Approximately 28% amino acid sequence identity to FAS ligand. Human and mouse TRAIL share 65% sequence identity.
