Analysis Note

Inhibits apoptosis of mouse L929 cells treated with 20 ng/ml recombinant human TRAIL or 12 ng/ml cross-linked recombinant human TRAIL.

Other Notes

Extracellular domain of mouse TRAIL R2 (a.a. 1-177) fused to the C-terminal Fc region of human IgG1.

Physical form

Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in phosphate buffered saline.


TRAIL Receptor 2/Fc Chimera from mouse was used to study apoptosis induced by acetyl-keto-beta-boswellic acid isolated from Boswellia carterri and Boswellia serrata in prostate cancer cells via death receptor 5-mediated pathway.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Member of the TNFR superfamily that binds TRAIL and induces apoptosis in a variety of cell types. The degree of homology between the death domains of mouse TRAIL R2 and either human TRAIL R1 or TRAIL R2 is 76% and 79%, respectively.

TRAIL Receptor 2 also refers as DR5 or TRICK2 belongs to TNF receptor family and can induce apoptosis via FADD and caspase-8. It also promotes NF-κ-B activation.
