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
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.

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.

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.
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 these

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.

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.

How do cell-free HIV virions avoid infecting dead-end host cells and cell fragments?
TLDR
HIV virions have evolved the ability to probe the internal status of potential host cells from the external cell membrane by assessing the ability of cells to co-cap CD4 and chemokine receptors, and the requirement for dual receptor binding in a concerted manner by three gp120 molecules is the molecular mechanism by which virions stochastically ensure high density co-capping of receptors.
Synthesis of Carum Carvi essential oil nanoemulsion, the cytotoxic effect, and expression of caspase 3 gene.
TLDR
The results showed the CCONE is an efficient novel apoptosis inducer for human colon cancer cells without any undesirable side effects and the Carum Carvi essential oil nanoemulsions can be applied as an effective food supplement due to its potent apoptotic activity.

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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
Site-directed photochemical disruption of the actin cytoskeleton by actin-binding Rose Bengal-conjugates.
Effect of anti-DNA autoantibodies on the gene expression of interleukin 8, transforming growth factor-beta, and nitric oxide synthase in cultured endothelial cells.
TLDR
In vitro evidence is provided that anti-dsDNA could play an important pathogenetic role in inducing inflammatory injury of vascular endothelium in SLE and a significant increase in the percentage of cells with fragmented DNA in HUVEC incubated with anti-DSDNA-containing-IgG is demonstrated, supporting the notion thatAnti-ds DNA may exert a direct apoptotic effect on cultured endothelial cells.
Chlorpromazine induces apoptosis in activated human lymphoblasts: a mechanism supporting the induction of drug-induced lupus erythematosus?
TLDR
It is suggested that chlorpromazine mediates apoptosis in human lymphoblasts through specific activation of intracellular proapoptotic signaling cascades and might lead to an unsynchronized inflow of apoptotic break-down products and thereby to the induction of (auto)immunity against nuclear components.
