Apoptosis in the immune system is a fundamental process regulating lymphocyte maturation, receptor repertoire selection and homeostasis. Thus, death by apoptosis is as essential for the function of lymphocytes as growth and differentiation. This article focuses on death receptor-associated apoptosis and the role of CD95 (Apo-1/Fas)-mediated signalling in T-cell and B-cell development and during the course of an immune response. Gaining an insight into these processes improves our understanding… 
The role of BH3-only proteins in the immune system
  • A. Strasser
  • Biology, Medicine
    Nature Reviews Immunology
  • 2005
TLDR
This review describes BH3-only proteins, a pro-apoptotic subgroup of the BCL-2 family, and their role in the development and function of the immune system.
CD95, BIM and T cell homeostasis
TLDR
This Review focuses on the roles of CD95 (also known as FAS) and BCL-2-interacting mediator of cell death (BIM), two major regulators of apoptosis in T cell homeostasis, with a particular emphasis on their cooperation in the shutdown of T cell responses.
Apoptosis, clearance mechanisms, and the development of systemic lupus erythematosus
TLDR
Some of the biochemical steps involved in the apoptotic process, how potentially immunogenic self antigens are generated during apoptosis, and the mechanisms by which the products of apoptosis are cleared and processed to avoid breaking immune tolerance are discussed.
Cross-talk between death and survival pathways
TLDR
Some of the recently reported death receptor– mediated mechanisms, which might play a role in shutting off the function of antiapoptotic cytokines and intracellular molecules, are drawn to.
Life and death in peripheral T cells
TLDR
The concepts of activation-induced cell death (AICD) and activated cell-autonomous death (ACAD) in the regulation of life and death in T cells are discussed.
Function and regulation of the CD95 (APO-1/Fas) ligand in the immune system.
TLDR
A survey of the role of the CD95/CD95L system in the immune system and, particularly, focus on the signals and transcription factors involved in CD95L expression is presented.
Role of Programmed Cell Death in the Immunopathogenesis of Sepsis.
TLDR
Apoptosis is an important mechanism during the immunopathogenesis of sepsis and several experimental therapeutic strategies have now been developed to beneficially influence these mechanisms; however, their potential clinical benefit is yet to be evaluated.
Restimulation‐induced cell death: new medical and research perspectives
TLDR
Clonal specificity lends great appeal as a strategy for targeted tolerance induction and treatment of autoimmune diseases, allergic disorders, and graft rejection by depleting undesired disease‐causing T cells while keeping the overall host immunity intact.
Cell death and immunity: Apoptosis as an HIV strategy to escape immune attack
  • M. Gougeon
  • Biology, Medicine
    Nature Reviews Immunology
  • 2003
TLDR
The molecular mechanisms by which HIV manipulates the apoptotic machinery to its advantage are discussed, the functional consequences of this process are assessed and how new therapeutics might counteract this strategy is evaluated.
Apoptosis and the Developing T Cells
TLDR
The basic concepts involved in the extrinsic and intrinsic pathway of apoptosis are reviewed, and an overview of the events that leads immature T cells to survive or die by apoptosis during their intrathymic development are provided.

The Role of APO‐1‐Mediated Apoptosis in the Immune System
TLDR
B and T lymphocytes contact antigen at different stages of maturation and in a different cellular context, depending on these circumstances, their responses can be entirely different and the molecular switches leading to these different responses are partially unknown.
Induction of apoptosis in uninfected lymphocytes by HIV-1 Tat protein.
TLDR
HIV-1 Tat protein was shown to induce cell death by apoptosis in a T cell line and in cultured peripheral blood mononuclear cells from uninfected donors, and was inhibitable by growth factors and was associated with enhanced activation of cyclin-dependent kinases.
The roles of costimulation and Fas in T cell apoptosis and peripheral tolerance.
TLDR
Using cells from TCR transgenic mice that do or do not express Fas, it is shown that there are two mechanistically distinct forms of apoptosis in CD4+ T cells and that peripheral tolerance may be induced in vivo independent of Fas-mediated cell death.
CD28 and apoptosis.
TLDR
The data suggest that B7-1/B7-2 signaling not only controls cell proliferation and T-helper cell subset selection, but also T-cell survival, as well as CTLA4-mediated signal transduction.
Human autoimmune lymphoproliferative syndrome, a defect in the apoptosis-inducing Fas receptor: A lesson from the mouse model
  • S. Nagata
  • Biology, Medicine
    Journal of Human Genetics
  • 1998
TLDR
This work has shown that two mouse mutations that cause autoimmune disease, lpr (lymphoproliferation) and gld (generalized lymphoproliferative disease), are mutations in Fas and FasL genes, respectively, respectively.
Autoimmunity as a consequence of retrovirus-mediated expression of C-FLIP in lymphocytes.
TLDR
The results suggest that activation-dependent downregulation of c-FLIP renders mature lymphocytes sensitive to death receptor-mediated apoptosis and is required to maintain self-tolerance.
Dendritic cells are resistant to apoptosis through the Fas (CD95/APO-1) pathway.
TLDR
Results demonstrate that murine DCs differ significantly from other APC populations in susceptibility to Fas-mediated apoptosis during cognate presentation of Ag, and suggests that signals proximal to the generation of ceramide might mediate resistance to Fas.
Fas‐mediated Cytotoxicity ‐ A New Immunoregulatory and Pathogenic Function of Thl CD4+ T Cells
TLDR
The expression of FasL in T cell subpopulations is described and the physiological role of Fas-mediated cytotoxicity in the immune system is discussed.
CD95(APO-1/Fas)-mediated apoptosis: live and let die.

  • 1999
TLDR
To investigate the role of CD95/CD95L in TCR-mediated apoptosis, malignant Jurkat T cells as a model are triggered via the TCR in the presence of blocking anti- CD95 antibodies, and reagents prevented anti-CD3-induced apoptosis.
Induction of apoptosis in mature T cells by tumour necrosis factor
TLDR
It is shown that tumour necrosis factor (TNF) can mediate mature T-cell receptor-induced apoptosis through the p75 TNF receptor and suggest that autoregulatory apoptosis of the mature T cells can occur by two distinct molecular mechanisms.
