Fas Ligand Protein
CD95 Antigen Ligand
Fas Ligand (FasL)
TNF Superfamily, Member 6
Tumor Necrosis Factor Ligand Superfamily Member 6
A transmembrane protein belonging to the tumor necrosis factor superfamily that was originally discovered on cells of the lymphoid-myeloid lineage, including activated T-LYMPHOCYTES and NATURAL KILLER CELLS. It plays an important role in immune homeostasis and cell-mediated toxicity by binding to the FAS RECEPTOR and triggering APOPTOSIS.
