TRAIL is a 30 kD protein known as TNF-related apoptosis inducing ligand, CD253, TNFSF10, or Apo-2L. It can be expressed as a cell surface (30 kD) and soluble ligand (19-20 kD) produced by megakaryocytes and platelets, monocytes, neutrophils, NK cells and activated T cells. This antigen is also expressed on tumor cells and transformed cell lines. TRAIL has been reported to induce apoptosis in tumor and transformed cell lines by a caspase-dependent process. This antibody is useful for flow cytometric staining and blocking studies.

The antibody was purified by affinity chromatography, and conjugated with PE under optimal conditions.
Lot-specific (please contact technical support for concentration and total µg amount, or use our Lookup tool if you have a lot number.)
Storage & Handling
The antibody solution should be stored undiluted between 2°C and 8°C, and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.

FC - Quality tested

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is 5 µl per million cells in 100 µl staining volume or 5 µl per 100 µl of whole blood.

Excitation Laser
Blue Laser (488 nm)
Green Laser (532 nm)/Yellow-Green Laser (561 nm)
Application Notes

Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: blocking1-4 of TRAIL-induced apoptosis and T cell mediated cytotoxicity. The Ultra-LEAF™ purified antibody (Endotoxin <0.01 EU/µg, Azide-Free, 0.2 µm filtered) is recommended for functional assays (Cat. No. 308214).
