Gene: FASLG (Fas ligand) Homo sapiens
Symbol: FASLG
Name: Fas ligand
Description: Predicted to have signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including necroptotic signaling pathway; positive regulation of apoptotic process; and release of sequestered calcium ion into cytosol by endoplasmic reticulum. Localizes to extracellular exosome; nucleus; and plasma membrane. Implicated in several diseases, including cholangiocarcinoma; chronic myeloid leukemia; multiple sclerosis; pancreatic cancer (multiple); and pre-eclampsia (multiple). Biomarker of several diseases, including bone marrow cancer (multiple); carcinoma (multiple); cervix uteri carcinoma in situ; clonorchiasis; and neurodegenerative disease (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
