Proximity Ligation Analysis of protein-protein interactions between MMP7 and FASLG. HeLa cells were stained with anti-MMP7 rabbit purified polyclonal 1:1200 and anti-FASLG mouse monoclonal antibody 1:50. Each red dot represents the detection of protein-protein interaction complex, and nuclei were counterstained with DAPI (blue).
The 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
