Background: TRAIL R1/TNFRSF10A
Human TRAIL R1, also called DR4, is a type 1, TNF R family, membrane protein which is a receptor for TRAIL (APO2 ligand). In the TNF superfamily nomenclature, TRAIL RI is referred to as TNFRSF10A. TRAIL R1 cDNA encodes a 468 amino acid precursor protein containing extracellular cysteine-rich domains, a transmembrane domain and a cytoplasmic death domain. Among the TNF receptor family proteins, TRAIL R1 is most closely related to TRAIL R2/DR5, sharing 55% amino acid sequence identity. Binding of trimeric TRAIL to TRAIL R1 induces apoptosis. The induction of apoptosis likely requires oligomerization of the receptor. The human TRAIL R1/Fc chimera neutralizes the ability of TRAIL to induce apoptosis. Besides TRAIL R1, an additional TRAIL R2/DR5, which tranduces apoptosis signal, and two TRAIL decoy receptors, which antagonize TRAIL-induced apoptosis, have been reported.
