Recombinant Active Protein
TNF-Related Apoptosis-Inducing Ligand (TRAIL) is produced by a wide variety of cell types and is shown to be a cytotoxic protein that induces apoptosis in tumor cells through activation of the death receptors, DR4 and DR5. Human TRAIL is active on mouse cells. Human TRAIL is produced in E.coli. Recombinant human TRAIL is a non-glycosylated protein, containing the 168 amino acid extracellular portion of TRAIL that is homologous to TNF. It has a molecular weight of 19.5 kDa.
