"Substantial evidence indicates that supra-oligomerization of the death receptors for Fas ligand and tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) is necessary for efficient activation of the apoptotic pathway. Bivalent IgG antibodies can induce the efficient apoptosis by mimicking the natural ligands but only after these antibodies are further oligomerized by cross-linking.
