Following antibodies against human (?) fas-ag (CD95) are commercially
available in
Germany (and world wide, I think) as of 20. Mar. 1996. This list tried but
not accomplished to be comprehensive. Further additions/updates/improvements
are hereby welcomed.

(1) According to information I recieved by product manager of the German
distributor of
Calbiochem/Oncogene apoptosis product series, this monoclonal antibody
against the fas-
ligand is specific for the murine protein and  N O T  for the human. It is
raised against the murine aa-sequence 261-277 which resides within the
cytoplasmic domain.
Interestingly, the catalogue indicates human reactivity on an other page.
Nevertheless, mAb offered by Transduction Laboratories against the human
fas-ligand was also raised against this approximate region of human origin.
This antibody is defined and offered as human-reactive. By the way,
according to my knowledge the mAb established by Nagata-S and co-workers
(Fas-Ligand in human serum, Nature-Med. 2(3), March 1996) is not comercially
available yet.

(2) If PharMingen distributes/manufactures an antibody directed against
human fas-antigen or fas-ligand is not known to me by certainty. You will
have to check this out by phone call or by WWW accession to PharMingen site
on the web indicated below.

(3) Transduction Laboratories anti-human Fas-ligand has an epitope within
the cytoplasmic domain, as checked by GenBank Fas-Ligand sequence U08137
submitted by Mark Alderson from Immunex at Seattle and as confirmed by
German sales representative.

NOTES: Prices are indicated only if information about US dollar pricing was
available to me. Some companies provided me a price list in Deutschmarks,
but because most of fellow cytometrists are not residing wihtin Germany, you
will have to inquire for prices not indicated in aforementioned listings,
All information is wheter acquired by phone calls to companies and/or
distributors or is taken out of catalogues available to me. No liability or
responsibility can be taken/granted for the information given, thogh I tried
hard to be precise as I could be.

I hope this list will serve resolving some reagent problems on this very
interesting and new but somewhat "chaotic" field of research. If further
questions arise, do not hesitate to contact me as indicated below.
