TRAIL, TNF-Related Apoptosis-Inducing Ligand (TRAIL), is a member of the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) family, also designated as Apo-2 ligand (Apo-2L) and CD253. TRAIL is a 281-amino acid protein, related most closely to Fas/Apo-1 ligand. It is expressed at cell surface as a transmembrane protein with an extracellular region and a homotrimeric subunit structure and also exists as a soluble form.
TRAIL interacts with several receptors: two pro-apoptotic death receptors DR4 (TRAIL R1) and DR5 (TRAIL R2) and three anti-apoptotic decoy receptors DcR1 (TRAIL R3), DcR2 (TRAIL R4) and osteoprotegrin (OPG). Soluble TRAIL induces apoptosis through these death receptors in many transformed cells (lymphoid as well as non-lymphoid tumor cell lines).
Because of its role in apoptosis and its stable trimer, TRAIL was described as a potential tumor-specific cancer therapeutic.
