    TRAIL raises hopes as a promising anti-tumor agent due to its selectivity toward cancer cells. Since TRAIL receptor availability can be analogous to ligand efficacy, we performed RT-PCR and immunohistochemical analysis of DR4 and DR5 in 51 colon cancer biopsy specimens and respective normal mucosa. The results showed that DR4 and DR5 were significantly upregulated in 37 and 47% of the tumor samples respectively, while both DR4 and DR5 were co-instantaneously upregulated in 31% of the samples analyzed. Positive transcriptional regulation of DRs was recorded as early as Dukes' A stage. Possible contribution of frequent oncogenic mutations in the MAPK pathway was investigated by direct sequencing in all 51 tumors. Samples (6/8) hosting either a KRAS(G12V) or BRAF(V600E) mutation, significantly amplified the upregulated expression of DR4 and DR5, showing strong inter-relation between overexpression and presence of oncogenic KRAS/ BRAF mutations and DRs expression.
