Exposure of phosphatidylserine (PS) on the surface of apoptotic cells has been suggested to serve as an important recognition signal for macrophages. In this work we show that triggering of the death receptor Fas on Jurkat cells results in the generation of reactive oxygen species with oxidation and externalization of PS but not of the other major(More)
Externalization of phosphatidylserine (PS) serves as a recognition signal for neighboring phagocytes, and studies published 10 years ago demonstrated that blebs on the surface of apoptotic cells are sites of enhanced procoagulant activity, perhaps owing to the aggregation of PS molecules on these membrane protrusions. However, the putative importance of(More)
IL-4 has previously been shown to stimulate motile responses in murine B lymphocytes. This was studied as acquisition of motile morphology and migration through filters in microchemotaxis chambers. In this paper, we investigated IL-4-stimulated migration of B cells into gels of native collagen fibers, which may be a more physiologically relevant assay. When(More)
The murine equivalent to CD2, previously known as a T cell marker, is expressed on mouse B cells. The monoclonal anti-CD2 antibody 12-15 was found to induce B cell homotypic adhesion. When treated with F(ab')2 fragments of 12-15, purified, resting B cells aggregate within 2 h of incubation and the response is optimal after 20 h. Anti-CD2-induced aggregation(More)
We have previously found that interleukin-4 and CD40 monoclonal antibodies (mAb) are strong potentiators of homotypic B cell aggregation which is dependent on LFA-1. We show here that CD23 mAb were also able to inhibit aggregation to a similar extent as LFA-1 antibodies. This inhibition was restricted to the MHM6 epitope of CD23 and antibodies to other(More)
