Tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) activates rapid apoptosis in tumor cells, but not in normal cells. TRAIL-induced apoptosis is achieved through binding to two death-signaling receptors, death receptor 4 and 5 (DR4 and 5). These receptors belong to the tumor necrosis factor receptor (TNFR) superfamily of transmembrane proteins and contain a cytoplasmic "death domain", which activates the cell′s apoptotic machinery.

Lyophilized from 10 mM Sodium Phosphate, pH 7.0.
Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in water to a concentration of 0.5-1.0 mg/ml. Do not vortex. This solution can be stored at 2-8°C for up to 1 week. For extended storage, it is recommended to further dilute in a buffer containing a carrier protein (example 0.1% BSA) and store in working aliquots at -20°C to -80°C.
