FasL (human) (multimeric) (rec.)
Method: Jurkat cells were treated O/N with the indicated concentrations of FasL (human) (multimeric) (rec.) (Prod. No. AG-40B-0130), Fc:FasL, Soluble (human) (rec.) (Prod. No. AG-40B-0132), FasL, Soluble (human) (rec.) (Prod. No. AG-40B-0001) or FasL, Soluble (human) (rec.) + TNF ligands enhancer (Prod. No. AG-44B-0001) (2 fold-dilutions, first concentration of 1000ng/ml). Cell death was quantified using PMS/MTS. The oligomeric FasL recombinant proteins (FasL (human) (multimeric) (rec.), Fc:FasL, Soluble (human) and FasL, Soluble (human) + TNF ligands enhancer) kill Jurkat cells at IC50 <0.2ng/ml.

|Product Specification Sheet|
MultimericFasL™ is a high activity construct in which two trimeric FasL are artificially linked via the collagen domain of ACRP30. This construct very effectively mimics the natural membrane-assisted aggregation of FasL in vivo. FasL is a cytokine that binds to TNFRSF6/Fas, a receptor that transduces the apoptotic signal into cells. It is involved in cytotoxic T cell mediated apoptosis and in T cell development.
