Apoptosis, or programmed cell death, occurs during normal cellular differentiation and development of multicellular organisms. It is induced by certain cytokines including TNF and Fas ligand in the TNF family through their death domain containing receptors, TNFR1 and Fas. A novel member in the TNF family was recently identified and designated TRAIL (for TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand) and Apo-2L (for Apo-2 ligand) (6,7). TRAIL is a type II membrane protein and expressed in a variety of human tissues. Two novel death domain containing receptors DR4 and DR5 have been identified as the receptor for TRAIL3-6. Like TNF and Fas-L, TRAIL induces apoptosis and NF-kB activation in many tissues and cells.

This monoclonal antibody was raised against a synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 17-35 (VLIVIFTVLLQSLCVAVTY) of human TRAIL, GenBank no NP_001177872.1. The peptide sequence used for immunogen has been shown to be involved in TRAIL and DR5 (TRAIL-R2) interaction.

Application Notes
The amino acid sequence used as immunogen for this antibody is 100% homologous in human and 95% dog and cat.
