|Description||TRAIL Receptor-1/DR4 and TRAIL Receptor-2/DR5 belong to the TNFR superfamily of transmembrane proteins and contain a cytoplasmic "death domain", which can activate the cell's apoptotic machinery. These receptors are activated by binding to either membrane anchored or soluble TRAIL/Apo2L. Recombinant human soluble TRAIL Receptor-2/DR5 is a 14.9 kDa protein (133 amino acid residues) consisting of the TNFR homologous, cysteine rich portion of the extracellular domain.|
|BiologicalActivity||sTRAIL Rec 2 reduced the production of LPS-induced TNF by its ability to neutralize endogenous TRAIL in fresh human PBMC. In this assay, endogenous TRAIL is induced during a 24 hour exposure to LPS (10 ng/mL) but in the presence of sTRAIL Rec 2, TRAIL-induced TNF is suppressed.|
|Authenticity||Verified by N-terminal and Mass Spectrometry analyses (when applicable).|
|Endotoxin||Endotoxin level is <0.1 ng/ µg of protein (<1EU/ µg).|
|Protein Content||Verified by UV Spectroscopy and/or SDS-PAGE gel.|
|Precautions||Recombinant Human sTRAIL Receptor-2 is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
