||TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand receptor 4 (TRAIL R4) is a decoy receptor that negatively regulate TRAIL-induced cytotoxicity by competing for ligand binding with TRAIL-R1 and TRAIL-R2.1 TRAIL R4 is expressed mainly on CD8+ and NK cells and induces apoptosis in many tumour cells, but not in normal cells. TRAIL-R4 contains partially truncated death domain and therefore is unable to induce apoptosis and serves as a negative regulator of apoptotic signaling by impairment death-inducing signaling complex (DISC) processing.
||The predicted molecular weight of Recombinant Human TRAIL R4 is Mr 44.2 kDa. However, the actual molecular weight as observed by migration on SDS Page is Mr 70-80 kDa.
|State Of Matter:
||>95% by SDS Page and analyzed by silver stain.
||<1.0 EU/µg as determined by the LAL method.
|Storage And Stability:
||This lyophilized protein is stable for six to twelve months when stored desiccated at -20℃ to -70℃. After aseptic reconstitution, this protein may be stored at 2℃ to 8℃ for one month or at -20℃ to -70℃ in a manual defrost freezer. Avoid Repeated Freeze Thaw Cycles. See Product Insert for exact lot specific storage instructions.
