||Death receptor-6 (DR6), a member of the death domain-containing TNFR superfamily, is highly expressed in lymphoid tissues and regulated upon lymphocyte activation. Targeted disruption of DR6 results in enhanced CD4(+) T cell proliferation and T helper 2 differentiation in vitro. DR6 contains an extracellular region and an intracellular region; the intracellular region harbors a death domain that is critical for transduction of apoptotic signals. DR6 interacts with death domain containing adapter molecule TRADD. Overexpression of DR6 induces apoptosis and activates NF-κB and JNK.
||The predicted molecular weight of Recombinant Human DR6 is Mr 60.3 kDa. However, the actual molecular weight as observed by migration on SDS Page is Mr 65-75 kDa.
