Functioni

Cytokine that binds to TNFRSF6/FAS, a receptor that transduces the apoptotic signal into cells (PubMed:7511063). Involved in cytotoxic T-cell-mediated apoptosis, natural killer cell-mediated apoptosis and in T-cell development (PubMed:19794494, PubMed:7532682). Initiates fratricidal/suicidal activation-induced cell death (AICD) in antigen-activated T-cells contributing to the termination of immune responses (PubMed:19794494). TNFRSF6/FAS-mediated apoptosis has also a role in the induction of peripheral tolerance (PubMed:10779162). Binds to TNFRSF6B/DcR3, a decoy receptor that blocks apoptosis (By similarity).By similarity3 Publications
Tumor necrosis factor ligand superfamily member 6, soluble form: Induces FAS-mediated activation of NF-kappa-B, initiating non-apoptotic signaling pathways (PubMed:19794494). Can induce apoptosis but does not appear to be essential for this process (By similarity).By similarity1 Publication

Post-translational modificationi

The soluble form derives from the membrane form by proteolytic processing. The membrane-bound form undergoes two successive intramembrane proteolytic cleavages. The first one is processed by ADAM10 producing an N-terminal fragment, which lacks the receptor-binding extracellular domain. This ADAM10-processed FasL (FAsL APL) remnant form is still membrane anchored and further processed by SPPL2A that liberates the FasL intracellular domain (FasL ICD). FasL shedding by ADAM10 is a prerequisite for subsequent intramembrane cleavage by SPPL2A in T-cells.By similarity
