CD95 / Fas is a member of the TNF-receptor superfamily. This receptor contains a death domain. It has been shown to play a central role in the physiological regulation of programmed cell death, and it has been implicated in the pathogenesis of various malignancies and diseases of the immune system. The interaction of CD95 / Fas with its ligand allows the formation of a death-inducing signaling complex that includes Fas-associated death domain protein (FADD), caspase 8, and caspase 10. The autoproteolytic processing of the caspases in the complex triggers a downstream caspase cascade and leads to apoptosis. This receptor has been also shown to activate NF-kappaB, MAPK3/ERK1, and MAPK8/JNK, and it is found to be involved in transducing the proliferating signals in normal diploid fibroblast and T cells (1).
