The FasL and the Furious - Introducing anti-mouse Fas ligand (CD178)
Introducing anti-mouse FasL (CD178)
The MFL3 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse Fas Ligand (FasL) also known as CD178, CD95 Ligand, and TNFSF6. FasL is a 40 kDa type II transmembrane glycoprotein and a member of the TNF superfamily. FasL is expressed on activated T cells and in spleen, testis, and eye. Upon binding to its receptor CD95 (Fas) FasL induces apoptotic cell death to maintain peripheral tolerance. Some tumors over-express FasL and induce the apoptosis of infiltrating lymphocytes, allowing the tumor to escape the effects of an immune response. CD178/CD95 interactions are also thought to play a role in the proliferation of CD8+ cells and neutrophil extravasation, chemotaxis and survival. The MFL3 antibody has been reported to block CD178/CD95 induced apoptosis.
This Antibody Is Useful For:
- in vivo FasL blockade
- in vitro FasL blockade
- Functional assay
- Immunohistochemistry (paraffin)
- Flow Cytometry
- The polyclonal Armenian hamster IgG is purified from Armenian hamster serum. It is ideal for use as a non-reactive control IgG for Armenian hamster antibodies in most in vivo and in vitro applications.
