ab94106 is a 293T cell transfected lysate in which Human DR6 has been transiently over-expressed using a pCMV-DR6 plasmid. The lysate is provided in 1X Sample Buffer. Note: For more detailed about how the transfected lysate was prepared view preparation notes
Function: May activate NF-kappa-B and promote apoptosis. May activate JNK and be involved in T-cell differentiation. Required for both normal cell body death and axonal pruning. Trophic-factor deprivation triggers the cleavage of surface APP by beta-secretase to release sAPP-beta which is further cleaved to release an N-terminal fragment of APP (N-APP). N-APP binds TNFRSF21 triggering caspase activation and degeneration of both neuronal cell bodies (via caspase-3) and axons (via caspase-6).
Tissue specificity: Highly expressed in heart, brain, placenta, pancreas, lymph node, thymus and prostate. Detected at lower levels in lung, skeletal muscle, kidney, testis, uterus, small intestine, colon, spleen, bone marrow and fetal liver. Very low levels were found in adult liver and peripheral blood leukocytes.
Similarity: Contains 1 death domain.
Contains 4 TNFR-Cys repeats.
