Description: The MD5-1 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse DR5, also known as TRAIL-R2, Apo2, TRICK2, and KILLER. DR5 binds to TRAIL, activates NF-kappaB, and induces TRAIL-mediated apoptosis. DR5 mRNA is expressed broadly by normal tissue and human antigen is also expressed by some tumor cell lines.
Applications Reported: The MD5-1 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: The MD5-1 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse DR5-transfected cells. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.25 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. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.

Apoptosis, or programmed cell death, occurs during normal cellular differentiation and development of multicellular organisms. Apoptosis is induced by certain cytokines including tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and Fas ligand in the TNF family through their death domain containing receptors, TNF receptor 1 (TNFR1) and Fas, respectively. Another member in the TNF family has been identified and designated TRAIL (for TNF related apoptosis inducing ligand) and Apo2L (for Apo2 ligand). Receptors for TRAIL include two death domain containing receptors, DR4 and DR5, as well as two decoy receptors, DcR1 and DcR2, lacking the intracellular signaling death domain. DR5 contains an intracellular death domain. This receptor can be activated by tumor necrosis factor related apoptosis inducing ligand (TNFSFS10/TEAIL/APO2L), and transduces apoptosis signal. Studies with FADD deficient mice suggested that FADD, a death domain containg adaptor protein, is required for the apoptosis mediated by this protein.
