Human FASL ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human FASL ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human FASL in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA, citrate).
Fas ligand(FasL or CD95L) is a type-II transmembrane protein that belongs to the tumor necrosis factor(TNF) family. Its binding with its receptor induces apoptosis. The human FASL gene consists of approximately 8 kb and is split into 4 exons. Fas ligand/receptor interactions play an important role in the regulation of the immune system and the progression of cancer. Fas ligand or FasL is a homotrimeric type II transmembrane protein. It signals through trimerization of FasR, which spans the membrane of the "target" cell. This trimerization usually leads to apoptosis, or cell death. Soluble Fas ligand is generated by cleaving membrane-bound FasL at a conserved cleavage site by the external matrix metalloproteinase MMP-7.
