DcR2 Polyclonal Antibody
Cayman Chemical Item Number 160755
human DcR2 precursor amino acids 249-263 (GGPERVHRVLFRRRS)
Apoptosis is induced by certain cytokines including TNF and Fas ligand in the TNF family through their death domain containing receptors. TRAIL/Apo2L is a new member of the TNF family and induces apoptosis of a variety of tumor cell lines. DR4 and DR5 are the recently identified functional receptors for TRAIL, and DcR1/TRID is a decoy receptor.1,2,3 Another member of the TRAIL receptor family was more recently identified and designated DcR2, TRAIL-R4, or TRUNDD.4,5,6 DcR2 has an extracellular TRAIL-binding domain but lacks an intracellular death domain and does not induce apoptosis. Like DR4 and DR5, DcR2 transcript is widely expressed in normal human tissues. Overexpression of DcR2 attenuates TRAIL-induced apoptosis.

Cayman Chemical was formed over thirty years ago by demonstrating the value of naturally growing gorgonian corals as a renewable, economically viable source of prostaglandins. Today we operate our business knowing that we owe our start to the renewable resources our environment had provided. As Cayman Chemical continues to grow we consistently evaluate our business processes to ensure we are operating at the highest environmental standards.
