Mouse Fas Ligand/TNFSF6 Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Detects mouse Fas Ligand/TNFSF6 in ELISAs and Western blots. In Western blots, approximately 2% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse (rm) TNF-alpha  is observed and no cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) APRIL, rhFas Ligand, rhGITR Ligand, rhLIGHT, rhTRAIL, rmTRANCE, and rhVEGI is observed.
Monoclonal Rat IgG1 Clone # 101626
Protein A or G purified from hybridoma culture supernatant
Mouse myeloma cell line NS0-derived recombinant mouse Fas Ligand/TNFSF6
Accession # P41047
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied either lyophilized or as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
Endotoxin Level
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the antibody by the LAL method.


Recommended Concentration
Western Blot
1 µg/mL
Recombinant Mouse Fas Ligand/TNFSF6 (Catalog # 526-SA)

Mouse Fas Ligand/TNFSF6 Sandwich Immunoassay

Recommended Concentration
ELISA Capture (Matched Antibody Pair)
2-8 µg/mL 

Use in combination with:

Detection Reagent: Mouse Fas Ligand/TNFSF6 Biotinylated Antibody (Catalog # BAF526)

Standard: Recombinant Mouse Fas Ligand/TNFSF6 Protein (Catalog # 526-SA)

Measured by its ability to neutralize Fas Ligand/TNFSF6-induced cytotoxicity in the Jurkat human acute T cell leukemia cell line. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 5-20 µg/mL in the presence of 5 µg/mL Recombinant Mouse Fas Ligand/TNFSF6 and 10 µg/mL of a cross-linking antibody, Mouse polyHistidine Monoclonal Antibody.

Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.

Cytotoxicity Induced by Fas Ligand/TNFSF6 and Neutralization by Mouse Fas Ligand/TNFSF6 Antibody. In the presence of a cross-linking antibody, Mouse polyHisti-dine Monoclonal Antibody (10 µg/mL, Catalog # MAB050), Recom-binant Mouse Fas Ligand/ TNFSF6 (Catalog # 526-SA) induces cytotoxicity in the Jurkat human acute T cell leukemia cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Under these conditions, cytotoxicity elicited by Recombinant Mouse Fas Ligand/ TNFSF6 (5 µg/mL) is neutral-ized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Rat Anti-Mouse Fas Ligand/TNFSF6 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5262). The ND50 is typically 5-20 µg/mL.

Background: Fas Ligand/TNFSF6

Fas Ligand (FasL) is a 40 kDa type II membrane protein belonging to the TNF family. In the new TNF super family nomenclature, FasL is referred to as TNFSF6. The specific receptor for FasL is Fas (CD95, Apo-1), a 45 kDa type I transmembrane protein that is a member of the TNF receptor family. FasL is predominantly expressed on activated T cells and NK cells, while Fas is expressed on various types of cells. The Fas/FasL system plays a crucial role in modulating immune response by inducing cell apoptosis to maintain homeostasis, self-tolerance of lymphocytes, and immune privilege. FasL was reported to be a potent chemoattractant for neutrophils, suggesting a novel proinflammatory function of this molecule. Like other members of the TNF family, the membrane-bound FasL can be cleaved by metalloproteinase to generate the soluble Fas ligand (sFasL) which is mainly a non-covalently linked homotrimer. It has been shown that the membrane-bound TNF‑ alpha and FasL are primary activators of their receptors. In contrast to soluble TNF‑ alpha which has potent cytotoxicity, sFasL is much less cytotoxic. Studies have shown that sFasL may competitively inhibit the killing effect of membrane FasL indicating that the cleaving of membrane FasL might be a mechanism to down‑regulate their activities.
