Regulatory Status Legend
During apoptosis, cells exhibit morphological signs of the death process: cell shrinkage, membrane blebbing, and chromatin condensation. The role of the cell surface cytokine receptor, Fas (Apo-1, CD95), in apoptosis has been well characterized. The tumor necrosis factor receptor (TNF-R) can trigger cell death, as well as various other responses. Data suggested that Fas and TNF-R affect a common target in the cell death pathway. This target has been identified as FADD, a novel protein that contains a death domain homologous to the death domains of Fas and TNF-R1. FADD specifically binds to Fas, an association mediated by their homologous death domains. Overexpression of FADD induces apoptosis that is inhibited by CrmA, a poxvirus protein that blocks both Fas- and TNF-induced cell death. Thus, FADD is a central element of the Fas-mediated cell death pathway.
This antibody is routinely tested by western blot analysis. Other applications were tested at BD Biosciences Pharmingen during antibody development only or reported in the literature.

Preparation and Storage
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
Store undiluted at -20°C.
- Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
