Description: The RIK-2 monoclonal antibody reacts with human TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL), a member of the TNF superfamily. TRAIL is not expressed by resting human cells but has been shown to be induced under certain activation conditions. Iin addition it is expressed on several human tumor lines. Interaction of TRAIL with its ligand, Apo-2, induces apoptosis. RIK-2 blocks TRAIL-induced apoptosis.
Applications Reported: The RIK-2 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: The RIK-2 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of human TRAIL transfected cells. This can be used at 5 µL (0.06 µg) per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test.

Apoptosis, or programmed cell death, occurs during normal cellular differentiation and development of multicellular organisms. Apoptosis 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 ligand, TRAIL induces apoptosis and NF-kB activation in many tissues and cells.
