Macrophage recognition of thiol-group oxidized cells: recognition of carbohydrate chains by macrophage surface nucleolin as apoptotic cells.

Abstract

The mechanism was investigated for macrophage recognition of cells oxidized by diamide, a thiol group-specific oxidizing reagent. Jurkat cells exposed to various concentrations of diamide were recognized by macrophages, the cells exposed to 25 µM diamide being best recognized. CD43, a major glycoprotein on the Jurkat cell surface, tended to form clusters… (More)
