dc.description.abstract Tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) is expressed by in vitro activated natural killer (NK) cells, but the relevance of this observation to the biological function of NK cells has been unclear. Herein, we have demonstrated the in vivo induction of mouse TRAIL expression on various tissue NK cells and correlated NK cell activation with TRAIL-mediated antimetastatic function in vivo. Expression of TRAIL was only constitutive on a subset of liver NK cells, and innate NK cell control of Renca carcinoma hepatic metastases in the liver was partially TRAIL dependent. Administration of therapeutic doses of interleukin (IL)-12, a powerful inducer of interferon (IFN)-gamma production by NK cells and NKT cells, upregulated TRAIL expression on liver, spleen, and lung NK cells, and IL-12 suppressed metastases in both liver and lung in a TRAIL-dependent fashion. By contrast, alpha -galactosylceramide (alpha -GalCer), a powerful inducer of NKT cell IFN-gamma and IL-4 secretion, suppressed both liver and lung metastases but only stimulated NK cell TRAIL-mediated function in the liver. TRAIL. expression was not detected on NK cells from IFN-gamma -deficient mice and TRAIL-mediated antimetastatic effects of IL-12 and a-GalCer were strictly IFN-gamma dependent. These results indicated that TRAIL induction on NK cells plays a critical role in IFN-gamma -mediated antimetastatic effects of IL-12 and alpha -GalCer.
