Engulfment by a phagocyte is the final commonevent in the life of most apoptotic cells. Phagocytosisof apoptotic bodies prior to their lysis prevents therelease of potentially toxic or immunogenicintracellular contents and activates an anti-inflammatoryresponse, at least in macrophages. We are beginning tounderstand the mechanisms by which macrophages and otherphagocytes recognize apoptotic cells in vitro, but we are a long way from determining theirrelative importance in vivo. The involuting… Expand
Immunology of Apoptosis and Necrosis
A complex of reactions regulating the number of cells in organs and tissues under normal and pathologic conditions is one of the most important systems of multicellular organisms. In this system,Expand
Identification of a factor that links apoptotic cells to phagocytes
TLDR
Results indicate that milk fat globule-EGF-factor 8 secreted from activated macrophages binds to apoptotic cells, and brings them to phagocytes for engulfment. Expand
Secondary necrosis in multicellular animals: an outcome of apoptosis with pathogenic implications
TLDR
In vivo secondary necrosis occurs when massive apoptosis overwhelms the available scavenging capacity, or when the scavenger mechanism is directly impaired, and may result in leakage of the cell contents with induction of tissue injury and inflammatory and autoimmune responses. Expand
Scrambled Eggs: Apoptotic Cell Clearance by Non-Professional Phagocytes in the Drosophila Ovary
TLDR
Recent advances on the interplay between engulfment pathways in the follicular epithelium for cell clearance in the Drosophila ovary are discussed and compared to apoptotic cell clearance mechanisms in C. elegans and mammals are provided. Expand
Macrophage chemotaxis to apoptotic cells
While much is known about the macrophage receptors important for the phagocytosis of apoptotic cells, little is known about how macrophages first "sense" and then move toward dying cells. WorkExpand

TLDR
The known molecular aspects of phagocytosis of apoptotic corpses in mammals, Caenorhabditis elegans and Drosophila melanogaster are reviewed from the point of view of the phagocyte and the apoptotic corpse. Expand
PHAGOCYTOSIS OF APOPTOTIC CELLS IN MAMMALS, CAENORHABDITIS ELEGANS AND DROSOPHILA MELANOGASTER: MOLECULAR MECHANISMS AND PHYSIOLOGICAL CONSEQUENCES
TLDR
The known molecular aspects of phagocytosis of apoptotic corpses in mammals, Caenorhabditis elegans and Drosophila melanogaster are reviewed from the point of view of the phagocyte and the apoptotic corpse. Expand
Massive apoptosis of colonocytes induced by butyrate deprivation overloads resident macrophages and promotes the recruitment of circulating monocytes
TLDR
Butyrate deprivation in vivo led to untimely death of colonocytes and triggered changes in the lamina propria indicative of an inflammatory response. Expand
PPAR-δ senses and orchestrates clearance of apoptotic cells to promote tolerance
TLDR
PPAR-δ has a pivotal role in orchestrating the timely disposal of apoptotic cells by macrophages, ensuring that tolerance to self is maintained. Expand
Expulsion of Live Pathogenic Yeast by Macrophages
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the human fungal pathogen Cryptococcus neoformans is able to escape from within macrophages without killing the host cell by a novel expulsive mechanism. Expand

Apoptosis: The importance of being eaten
TLDR
Increasing evidence that there may be factors capable of perturbing safe clearance of apoptotic cells in vivo suggests that failure of this process may be a hitherto unrecognised pathogenetic factor in inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. Expand
Recognition and phagocytosis of cells undergoing apoptosis.

  • 1997
TLDR
A full understanding of this complexity will require definition of recognition mechanisms which operate in vivo in higher organisms as well as specific evidence in vitro for involvement of phagocyte receptors. Expand
Vitronectin receptor-mediated phagocytosis of cells undergoing apoptosis
TLDR
It is reported that macrophage recognition of apoptotic cells (both neutrophils and lymphocytes) is mediated by the vitronectin receptor, a heterodimer belonging to the β3 or cytoadhesin family of the integrins. Expand
Human Kupffer cell recognition and phagocytosis of apoptotic peripheral blood lymphocytes.
TLDR
Experiments indicate that the membranes of apoptotic peripheral blood lymphocytes express increased amounts of N-acetylgalactosamine, D-galactose, and mannose residues when compared with membranes of normal PBL, and support the idea that Kupffer cells phagocytose apoptotic cells by means of lectin-like receptors. Expand
Human CD14 mediates recognition and phagocytosis of apoptotic cells
TLDR
Results indicate that clearance of apoptotic cells is mediated by a receptor whose interactions with ‘non-self’ components (LPS) and ‘self” components (apoptotic cells) produce distinct macrophage responses. Expand
Exposure of phosphatidylserine on the surface of apoptotic lymphocytes triggers specific recognition and removal by macrophages.
TLDR
The data suggest that macrophages specifically recognize phosphatidylserine that is exposed on the surface of lymphocytes during the development of apoptosis, and suggest that apoptotic lymphocytes lose membrane phospholipid asymmetry and expose phosphorus on the outer leaflet of the plasma membrane. Expand
Apoptosis: mechanisms and roles in pathology.
TLDR
This chapter discusses the mechanisms and roles of apoptosis in pathology, and the arrival of neutrophil polymorphs permits digestion and phagocytosis of the constituents of the necrotic cells, but brings with it the risk of further tissue damage. Expand
Apoptosis: A Basic Biological Phenomenon with Wide-ranging Implications in Tissue Kinetics
TLDR
Apoptosis seems to be involved in cell turnover in many healthy adult tissues and is responsible for focal elimination of cells during normal embryonic development, and participates in at least some types of therapeutically induced tumour regression. Expand
Complement-dependent Clearance of Apoptotic Cells by Human Macrophages
TLDR
In the presence of serum, the macrophage receptors for C3bi, CR3 and CR4, were significantly more efficient in the uptake of apoptotic cells compared with previously described receptors implicated in clearance. Expand
Different populations of macrophages use either the vitronectin receptor or the phosphatidylserine receptor to recognize and remove apoptotic cells.
TLDR
The results suggest that the mechanism by which apoptotic cells are recognized and phagocytosed by macrophages is determined by the subpopulation of macrophage studied. Expand
