Gene information for FASLG (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID356
Official gene symbolFASLG
Full nameFas ligand (TNF superfamily, member 6)
Gene summaryThe protein encoded by this gene is the ligand for FAS. Both are transmembrane proteins. Interaction of FAS with this ligand is critical in triggering apoptosis of some types of cells such as lymphocytes. Defects in this gene may be related to some cases of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). [provided by RefSeq]
