Increased spontaneous, tumor necrosis factor receptor- and CD95 (Fas)-mediated apoptosis in cord blood T-cell subsets from Turner's syndrome


Increased spontaneous as well as TNF-α-induced and CD95-mediated apoptosis were observed in CD4+ and CD8+ T cells from the cord blood of a patient with Turner's syndrome as compared to normal cord blood. Increased apoptosis was associated with an increased expression of TNFR-1, TNFR-2, and CD95L and decreased expression of cIAP1 and FLIPL. No significant… (More)
