LFG, a seven transmembrane spanning protein, is a recently identified member of a family whose members can inhibit apoptotic cell death induced by Fas receptor. LFG is a human homolog of rat NMP35 and consists of a conserved transmembrane domain and a small cytoplasmic domain. Reports have shown that LFG protects the cell from Fas-mediated neuronal cell death in a novel way. LFG binds to Fas receptor but doesn and quote;t have any effect in reducing Fas expression or decreasing the ability of FADD binding to the receptor. Furthermore, LFG doesn and quote;t protect the cells from TNF-alpha mediated cell death process. Although LFG is ubiquitously expressed, Northern blot analysis detected an increased expression in hippocampus and other neural tissues, suggesting a protective role in neurodegenerative diseases.
