Biochem/physiol Actions

Binding of Fas Ligand (FasL) to Fas receptor triggers apoptosis in Fas-bearing cells. FasL has the ability to kill T cells and activate B cells which leads to down-regulation of the immune response. The mechanism of Fas induced apoptosis involves recruitment of pro-caspase 8 through an adaptor molecule called FADD (Fas-associated protein with death domain) followed by processing of the pro-enzyme to active forms. These active caspases then cleave various cellular substrates leading to eventual cell death. FasL is also involved in AGE (advanced glycation end-product)-mediated apoptosis in human retinal ARPE-19 cells, suggesting its role in diabetic retinopathy. Changes in the activity of FasL suppress normal apoptosis, leading to abnormal survival and growth of tumor cells. Mutations in the FasL gene causes autoimmune lymphoproliferative syndrome (ALPS).
