Gene Information

human ... FAS(355)

General description

The gene FAS (apoptosis-mediating surface antigen) is mapped to human chromosome 10q24.1. The encoded protein is a cell surface receptor. FAS is a type 1 membrane receptor. It belongs to the tumor necrosis factor family of surface receptors.

All Prestige Antibodies Powered by Atlas Antibodies are developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project (www.proteinatlas.org)and as a result, are supported by the most extensive characterization in the industry.

The Human Protein Atlas project can be subdivided into three efforts: Human Tissue Atlas, Cancer Atlas, and Human Cell Atlas. The antibodies that have been generated in support of the Tissue and Cancer Atlas projects have been tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues and through the recent efforts of the Human Cell Atlas project, many have been characterized by immunofluorescence to map the human proteome not only at the tissue level but now at the subcellular level. These images and the collection of this vast data set can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link.

Biochem/physiol Actions

FAS (apoptosis-mediating surface antigen) is mainly responsible for apoptotic signaling. It interacts with the ligand, Fas ligand (FasL), to initiate signaling events leading to cell death. Disturbances in the expression of Fas are associated with cancer development. Mutation in the gene might be associated with coronary artery disease. FAS plays a significant role in diabetic retinopathy in diabetes mellitus patients. This is due to AGE (advanced glycation end-product)-associated apoptosis via Fas/FasL. FAS might also be involved with the pathogenesis of pulmonary edema in Plasmodium falciparum - infected malaria patients by regulating cell death in the lungs.

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.

Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
  • IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
  • Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.


Corresponding Antigen APREST77858.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide.

In this study, the adipogenesis-suppressing effect of 3,5-dimethoxy(4-methoxyphenyl)benzamide (DMPB), a derivative of the anti-obesity substance resveratrol, was measured in 3T3-L1 cells. The results show that DMPB effectively suppressed the hormone-induced differentiation of 3T3-L1 cells, compared to resveratrol at the same...
