Tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL/Apo2L) is one of the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) superfamily members, participating in many biological processes including apoptosis and immune responses. In present study, a novel human soluble TRAIL (sTRAIL) homolog, CasTRAIL was identified from the oyster, Crassostrea ariakensis. CasTRAIL has… CONTINUE READING
