The CD95 (Fas or APO-1) antigen is a 40-50 kDa transmembrane glycoprotein. It belongs to the Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) superfamily and contains three cysteine-rich repeats. This cell surface molecule mediates apoptosis (programmed cell death). CD95 antigen is expressed on a substantial proportion of peripheral blood CD4+ lymphocytes, CD8+ lymphocytes and B lymphocytes but on a minor proportion of NK cells. It is not found on platelets or erythrocytes, but is expressed variably on granulocytes and monocytes. CD95 is strongly up-regulated on activated T cells, B cells, NK cells and thymocytes. Moreover, it is widely expressed on cell lines of T, B, NK and myeloid lineages. Most other tissues express CD95.
