More Information
Product Details
Synonyms CD95; APO-1; TNFRSF6; Tumor Necrosis Factor Receptor Superfamily Member 6; Apoptosis-mediating Surface Antigen FAS
Product Type Monoclonal Antibody
Clone APO-1-1
Isotype Mouse IgG1
Source/Host Purified from concentrated hybridoma tissue culture supernatant.
Immunogen/Antigen Recombinant human Fas.
Label/Conjugates Preservative Free

Flow Cytometry 1-2µg/ml
Functional Application: Induces apoptosis upon cross-linking, but less efficient than clone APO-1-3.
Immunohistochemistry: Frozen sections; not suitable for stainings on paraffin sections.

Note: APO-1-1 (IgG1) is an isotype-switch variant of the original clone APO-1-3 (IgG3) (Prod. No. AG-20B-0062PF). Since undesired side reactions in immunohistochemistry are minimal for IgG1 antibodies, APO-1-1 is especially useful for immunohistology on cryostat sections and on cytospin preparations. For Western Blot and Functional Applications we recommend to use anti-Fas (human), mAb (APO-1-3) (Prod. No. AG-20B-0062PF).

Fas (CD95) is a member of the death receptor (DR) family, a subfamily of the tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily. The formation of the Fas death-inducing signaling complex (DISC) is the initial step of Fas signaling. Activation of procaspase-8 at the DISC leads to the induction of DR-mediated apoptosis. Stimulation of Fas has also been reported to trigger non-apoptotic pathways. It has been shown that membrane-bound FasL is essential for the cytotoxic activity, whereas soluble FasL appears to promote autoimmunity and tumorigenesis via induction of non-apoptotic pathways, in particular NF-κB.
