CD178 is a 38-42 kD type II glycoprotein also known as Fas ligand and CD95L. CD178 belongs to the TNF superfamily and is expressed on activated T lymphocytes, NK cells, monocytes, and granulocytes. CD178 is also expressed on parenchymal cells of the retina and cornea, retinal pigment epithelial cells, and testis. The extracellular region of FasL can be cleaved by matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) to give rise to a 26 kD soluble protein. CD178 binds to CD95, a member of the TNFR superfamily, to induce apoptosis. CD95/CD95L interactions play an important role in the maintenance of peripheral tolerance and survival.

FC - Quality tested

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is 5 µl per million cells in 100 µl staining volume or 5 µl per 100 µl of whole blood.

Excitation Laser
Blue Laser (488 nm)
Green Laser (532 nm)/Yellow-Green Laser (561 nm)
Application Notes

Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: immunoprecipitation1,2, immunofluorescence microscopy3, immunocytochemistry2, blocking of Fas induced apoptosis1, and Western blotting11. Fas Ligand is expressed at low density on activated cells. For most successful immunofluorescent staining results, it may be important to maximize signal over background by using a relatively bright fluorochrome-antibody conjugate (Cat. No. 306407) or by using a high sensitivity, three-layer staining technique (e.g., including a biotinylated antibody (Cat. No. 306404) or biotinylated anti-mouse IgG second step (Cat. No. 405303), followed by SAv-PE (Cat. No. 405204)). In addition, applying matrix metalloproteinases (MMPS) inhibitor in the cell culture system will increase the FasL staining intensity. The Ultra-LEAF™ purified antibody (Endotoxin < 0.01 EU/µg, Azide-Free, 0.2 µm filtered) is recommended for functional assays (Cat. No. 306415 and 306416).
