MA1-20163 detects Fas in human samples.
MA1-20163 has been successfully used in FACS and Western blot procedures.
The MA1-20163 immunogen corresponds to human Fas/CD95 cDNA which was transfected into mouse L cells.
Store product as a concentrated solution. Centrifuge briefly prior to opening the vial. For short-term storage (1-2 weeks), product can be stored at 4°C. For long-term storage, aliquot and store product at -20° C or below, avioiding multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
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.
