CD95 Function Induces apoptosis
CD95 Summary The FAS receptor (FasR), also known as apoptosis antigen 1 (APO-1 or APT), cluster of differentiation 95 (CD95) or tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily member 6 (TNFRSF6) is a protein that in humans is encoded by the TNFRSF6 gene.[1][2]The Fas receptor is a death receptor on the surface of cells that leads to programmed cell death (apoptosis). It is one of two apoptosis pathways, the other being the mitochondrial pathway.[3] FasR is located on chromosome 10 in humans and 19 in mice. Similar sequences related by evolution (orthologs)[4] are found in most mammals.
