Reacts specifically with the functional epitope of human Fas (CD95/Apo-1) antigen. By immunoblotting, the clone recognizes denatured, non-reduced recombinant human Fas (amino acid residues 1-173). The antibody is reactive in flow cytometry, and may be reactive in the induction of apoptosis.

Many cells can be activated to undergo apoptosis following the interaction of selected ligands with cell surface receptors. One of the most studied receptors include the Fas receptor. Apoptosis mediated by both signaling cascades results in activation of a family of cystein proteases known as caspases. Engagement of Fas by its ligand, or by an appropriate antibody, results in the rapid induction of programmed cell death in susceptible cell lines. This process bypasses the usual long sequence of signaling enzymes and immediately activates preexisting caspases.
