Abstract Tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) selectively induces apoptosis in various tumor cells and virus-infected cells, but rarely in normal cells. The killing specificity of TRAIL has brought great interests to develop a novel apoptosis-based anti-tumor agent for clinical application. TRAIL is expressed in many normal tissues and cells, such as liver, brain, kidney, heart, colon, lung, and testis. However, immunological and physiological functions of TRAIL in vivo have not been understood well. In the present paper we summarized the progress in the research on immunological functions of TRAIL.
