In the very early stages of target cell apoptosis induced by CTL, we found that fluorescence of labeling probes of the target plasma membrane, such as N-(3-triethylammoniumpropyl)-4-(p-dibutylaminostyryl)pyridin ium dibromide (FM1-43), was translocated into intracellular membrane structures including nuclear envelope and mitochondria. This translocation was(More)
The Fas (CD95)-transmitted cell death signal has been reported to involve a protein tyrosine phosphatase, SHP-1. We analyzed the role of SHP-1 in the Fas-dependent as well as the perforin-dependent pathways of CTL-mediated killing using target cells prepared from SHP-1-deficient motheaten mice. Con A blast targets prepared from both a motheaten mouse and a(More)
Despite extensive mutational studies on the human CD4 molecule and its affinity to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) envelope glycoprotein gp120, coreceptor functions of such mutant molecules have only been examined by indirect measurement of their affinity to class II major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules. In this report, coreceptor functions(More)
