Tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) is a cytotoxic member of the TNF family. Some reports have shown that TRAIL is released from cells in a soluble form. In this work, we have investigated the mechanism of release of TRAIL from monocytes. First, we show that whole gram-positive, gram-negative and mycoplasmal bacteria as… CONTINUE READING
