The type II transmembrane protein FASLG is a member of the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) superfamily. A fas ligand/receptor interaction has a significant part in the regulation of the immune system and the advancement of cancer. FASLG is expressed on the activated T cell surface as a nondisulfidelinked homotrimer. FASLG binding to Fas/CD95/TNFRSF6 on a nearby cell prompts apoptosis in the Fas expressing cell. FASLG is released from the cell surface by metalloproteinases as a soluble molecule that stays trimeric and is able to bind with Fas, but its capability to activate apoptosis is radically reduced. In addition, FASLG binds to DcR3 - a soluble trap receptor with no signal transduction capabilities. Flawed Fas-mediated apoptosis causes oncogenesis in addition to drug resistance in existing tumors. Constitutive expression of FASLG in a variety of tumors enables their immune evasion. Both mouse and human FASLG are active on mouse and human cells.


Recombinant Human FAS Ligand produced in HEK293 cells is a polypeptide chain containing 147 amino acids (134-281a.a).
FASLG is fused to a 6 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.


HEK293 cells.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered colorless solution.


The FASLG solution (0.6mg/ml) contains 1xPBS.


FASLG Human Recombinant although stable at 4°C for 1 week, should be stored below -18°C.
Please prevent freeze thaw cycles.


Greater than 95.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by SEC-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.

Biological Activity

Fas ligand is biologically active as determined by its ability to induce cytotoxicity in Jurkat cells in the absence of any cross-linking. The expected ED50< 10 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of 1x105 units/mg.
