Cell surface trafficking of Fas in NIT-1 cells and dissection of surface and total Fas expression.

Abstract

The appearance of Fas receptor at the surface of pancreatic beta-cells affected by progressive insulitis strongly suggests that Fas-mediated beta-cell apoptosis plays an important role in the pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes. In support of this concept, the present study has shown that islet cells from NOD mice and the beta-cell line NIT-1 respond to the… (More)
