Abstract: Recently, several decoy molecules belonging to tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily (TNFRSF) have been identified, including decoy receptor 1 (DcR1), decoy receptor 2 (DcR2), and decoy receptor 3 (DcR3). One of the tumor necrosis factor superfamily (TNFSF) members, TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL), binds to DcR1 and DcR2, which are membranous receptors with a truncated cytoplasmic domain, thus unable to transduce TRAIL-mediated signaling. In contrast to DcR1 and DcR2, DcR3 is a soluble recep…
