TRAIL (TNF-related Apoptosis Inducing Ligand) also known as CD253, is a cytotoxic protein which activates apoptosis in tumor cells but not in normal cells.
TRAIL binds to two so-called 'death receptors', designated DR4 and DR5.

Recombinant human TRAIL expressed in E. coli

Suitable for use in Functional Assays. Other applications not tested.
