DAG for GO:0097191id: GO:0097191

name: extrinsic apoptotic signaling pathway
namespace: biological_process
def: "A series of molecular signals in which a signal is conveyed from the cell surface to trigger the apoptotic death of a cell. The pathway starts with either a ligand binding to a cell surface receptor, or a ligand being withdrawn from a cell surface receptor (e.g. in the case of signaling by dependence receptors), and ends when the execution phase of apoptosis is triggered." [GOC:mtg_apoptosis, GOC:yaf, PMID:17340152]
comment: Fas acts as a death receptor with a role in apoptosis, but can also act as a non-apoptotic signal transducer.
