Decoy molecules which binds to Fas L are seen in _______________

A. Lung cancer

B. Melanoma

C. Breast cancer

D. Ovarian cancer

This question was addressed to me in homework.

This interesting question is from Apoptosis and Cancer topic in chapter Cancer Biology & Methods in Cytogenetics of Cytogenetics

Correct choice is A. Lung cancer

To elaborate: In lung cancer and in colon cancer we see ‘decoy’ molecule that binds to the Fas ligand. Thus, the ligand can no longer induce apoptosis by interacting with the Fas receptor.
