F-actin cleavage was studied in PBMC after treatment with anti-dsDNA antibodies. Significant changes in F-actin disruption detected by decrease of FITC-phalloidin staining occurred after apoptosis induction with anti-dsDNA antibodies ( p<0.006). Despite of similar F-actin disruption, the switch of phosphatidylserine (PS) to the outer leaflet of the cell membrane as detected by annexin V binding was lower after anti-dsDNA antibody than without antibody treatment (58.4±11.0% vs. 81.9±7.7%).

Flow Cytometric Analysis of the LE Cell Phenomenon
A flow cytometry-based phagocytosis assay was developed and utilized to measure the LE cell phenomenon at the single cell level in vitro. Since the lupus erythematosus (LE) cell phenomenon is aExpand

TLDR
The phagocytosis-based flow cytometry assay is suitable for analyzing the lupus erythematosus cell phenomenon and will possibly alleviate further studies on the LE cell phenomenon with modified cell models and/or conditions. Expand
Antitumor and apoptotic effects of bergaptol are mediated via mitochondrial death pathway and cell cycle arrest in human breast carcinoma cells
TLDR
Bergaptol induced dose-dependent cytotoxic effect on MCF-7 cell viability showing IC 50 value of 52.2 µM and induced both early and late apoptosis in concentration-dependent manner. Expand
Nuclear-Targeting Autoantibodies Induced Nuclear PARP Cleavage Accompanied by More Pronounced Decrease of Peripheral White Blood Cells Than Ro/SSA and La/SSB Antigen-Targeting Autoantibodies

TLDR
Nuclear targeting autoantibodies are associated to lower peripheral blood cells counts than Ro/SSA, and La/SSB cytoplasmic targetingAutoantibody detection provides an explanation for the pathogenesis of cytopenias associated with SLE. Expand
Apoptosis: Its Physiological Implication And Therapeutic Possibilities
Apoptosis is the process of programmed cell death (PCD) which usually occurs in multicellular organisms. In this case, biochemical events leads to morphological cell changes and death. Some of theseExpand
Apoptosis: the link between autoantibodies and leuko-/lymphocytopenia in patients with lupus erythematosus
  • I. Böhm

  • 2004
TLDR
The data suggest that autoantibodies may be associated with blood cytopenias, and CD95 seems to play a central role in this signalling cascade. Expand
IgG deposits can be detected in cell nuclei of patients with both lupus erythematosus and malignancy
  • I. Böhm
  • Medicine
  • Clinical Rheumatology
  • 2007
TLDR
The purpose was to find immunological disturbances in lupus erythematosus (LE) patients with concomitant malignancy and IgG penetrating living cells has been shown previously in SLE but has so far not been found in association to LE patients with malignant disease. Expand
The Role of Telomere Maintenance in Adult Mammalian Acute Central Nervous System Injury and Retinal Ganglion Cell Apoptosis
TLDR
This work demonstrates that TERT expression promotes RGC survival while Telomerase activity has no role, that TCAB1, TRF1, Ku70, and EST1A play important roles in R GC survival while TRF2 and DNA PKcs do not, and that, overall, telomere maintenance cannot be eliminated as a contributing factor in RGC degeneration and apoptosis within the acutely injured CNS.

TLDR
In patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), the highly ordered signal transduction cascade of apoptosis is disturbed and SLE patients show reduced PARP activity. Expand
New insights into autoantibody profiles from immune privileged sites in the eye: A glaucoma study
TLDR
The results emphasize the specificity of immunoreactions found in blood samples of glaucoma patients and indicate the necessity of analyzing not only up-regulated but also down-regulated antibody reactivities, which might be likewise relevant for the understanding of other diseases. Expand

Caspase-mediated cleavage of cytoskeletal actin plays a positive role in the process of morphological apoptosis
TLDR
It is shown that, in some solid tumor cells, induction of apoptosis was accompanied by caspase-dependent actin-cleavage to 15 and 31 kDa fragments in vivo, indicating that actin cleavage could play a positive role in the morphological changes of apoptotic cells downstream of caspases activation. Expand
Apoptosis induced by disruption of the actin cytoskeleton is mediated via activation of CD95 (Fas/APO-1)
TLDR
It is shown that although disruption of the actin cytoskeleton by cytochalasin B itself induces moderate apoptosis, it enhances apoptosis in HeLa cells induced either by UV radiation or an agonistic anti-CD95 antibody, suggesting a link between receptor clustering and actin rearrangement. Expand
Flow cytometry detection of caspase 3 activation in preapoptotic leukemic cells.
TLDR
These results demonstrate that anti-active caspase 3 labeling can be an alternative to fluorogenic substrates to efficiently detect early apoptosis by FCM in heterogeneous samples and confirm that anthracyclines induce blast cell apoptosis in acute leukemia blast cells by a caspases 3-dependent pathway. Expand
Anti-DNA autoantibodies reveal toxicity to tumor cell lines.
TLDR
It was shown that treatment of the cells with cytotoxic anti-DNA autoantibodies induced internucleosomal DNA fragmentation and Annexin V binding to the cell surface characteristic of apoptotic pathway of cell death. Expand
Phosphatidylserine (PS) induces PS receptor–mediated macropinocytosis and promotes clearance of apoptotic cells
TLDR
The results suggest that regardless of the receptors engaged on the phagocyte, ingestion does not occur in the absence of phosphatidylserine (PS), and recognition of PS was found to be dependent on the presence of the PS receptor (PSR). Expand
Endonuclease G: a mitochondrial protein released in apoptosis and involved in caspase-independent DNA degradation
TLDR
The ability of truncated Bid (tBid) to induce the release of a DNAse activity from mitochondria during apoptosis was confirmed in the liver from mice injected with agonistic anti-Fas antibody and is completely prevented in Bcl-2 transgenic mice. Expand
The effect of human polyclonal anti-dsDNA autoantibodies on apoptotic gene expression in cultured rat glomerular mesangial cells.
TLDR
The results suggest that anti-dsDNA induce RMC apoptosis via an unidentified mechanism different from Fas, c-myc or p53 pathway. Expand
Systemic Exposure to Irradiated Apoptotic Cells Induces Autoantibody Production
TLDR
Findings indicate that systemic exposure to apoptotic cells can induce an immune response in normal mice, and may help to explain antigen selection and initiation of the immune responded in diseases characterized by increased rates of apoptosis such as AIDS and, possibly, systemic lupus erythematosus. Expand
Different orders for acquisition of apoptotic characteristics by leukocytes
TLDR
It is interesting that the nuclear changes but not the membrane changes studied in mouse spleen cells required caspase activity, and importantly the order for acquisition of the characteristics is specific for the cell type and for the mode of induction of apoptosis. Expand
