The intracellular modification of proteins by the addition of a single O-linked N-acetylglucosamine (O-GlcNAc) molecule is a ubiquitous post-translational modification in eukaryotic cells. It is catalysed by O-linked N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase, which attaches O-GlcNAc to serine/threonine residues, and it is counter-regulated by(More)
1295 c-FLIP is a well-described inhibitor of death receptor–mediated apoptosis (1). At the mRNA level, it can be found in multiple splice variants , whereas at the protein level only three isoforms, c-FLIP L , c-FLIP S , and c-FLIP R , have been detected so far (1–4). All three c-FLIP isoforms contain two death eff ector domains (DEDs), which are(More)
Caspase-2 was reported to be involved in a number of apoptotic pathways triggered by various stimuli. However, the molecular mechanism of procaspase-2 activation in the course of apoptosis remains poorly defined. In this report, we demonstrate that procaspase-2 is recruited to the CD95 (Fas/APO-1) death-inducing signaling complex (DISC) in human T- and(More)
Life and death of peripheral lymphocytes is strictly controlled to maintain physiologic levels of T and B cells. Activation-induced cell death (AICD) is one mechanism to delete superfluous lymphocytes by restimulation of their immunoreceptors and it depends partially on the CD95/CD95L system. Recently, we have shown that hematopoietic progenitor kinase 1(More)
