Decoy receptor 3 (DcR3) is proteolytically processed to a metabolic fragment having differential activities against Fas ligand and LIGHT.
Fas ligand (FasL) and Fas receptor are members of the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) receptor and ligand family that play an important role in regulating apoptosis in normal physiology. Decoy receptor 3Expand
