TRAIL R4 is a type 1 transmembrane receptor, but exhibits a truncated cytoplasmic domain. Like the active receptors TRAIL R1 and R2, OPG has a DD motif but is a soluble protein.

Although this receptor binds to the cytotoxic ligand TRAIL, it contains a truncated death domain and functions as an inhibitory receptor. When overexpressed, the DcR2 receptor can protect cells against TRAIL mediated cytotoxicity. Like DR4 and DR5, DcR2 transcript is widely expressed in a variety of normal human tissues but DcR2 is absent in most tumors. Ultraviolet radiation has been shown to upregulate DcR2 expression on human keratinocytes. Over expression of DcR2 attenuated TRAIL induced apoptosis.
