Chemical TNF-Related Apoptosis-Inducing Ligand

Name TNF-Related Apoptosis-Inducing Ligand
Equivalent Terms Apo 2 Ligand | Apo-2 Ligand | Apo 2L Protein | Apo-2L Protein | Apoptosis-Inducing Ligand, TNF-Related | TNF Related Apoptosis Inducing Ligand | TNF Superfamily, Member 10 | TRAIL Protein | Tumor Necrosis Factor Ligand Superfamily Member 10
Definition A transmembrane-protein belonging to the TNF family of intercellular signaling proteins. It is a widely expressed ligand that activates APOPTOSIS by binding to TNF-RELATED APOPTOSIS-INDUCING LIGAND RECEPTORS. The membrane-bound form of the protein can be cleaved by specific CYSTEINE ENDOPEPTIDASES to form a soluble ligand form.
