Apoptosis is characterized by the programmed activation of specific biochemical pathways leading to the organized demise of cells. To date, aspects of the intracellular signaling machinery involved in this phenomenon have been extensively dissected and characterized. However, recent studies have elucidated a novel role for changes in the intracellular milieu of the cells as important modulators of the cell death program. Specially, intracellular ionic homeostasis has been reported to be a… Expand
Ouabain-induced perturbations in intracellular ionic homeostasis regulate death receptor-mediated apoptosis
TLDR
Ouabain potentiates apoptosis in the human lymphoma Jurkat cells exposed to Fas ligand or tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand but not other apoptotic agents such as H2O2, thapsigargin or UV-C implicating a role for the Na+–K+-ATPase in death receptor-induced apoptosis. Expand
Cell shrinkage and monovalent cation fluxes: role in apoptosis.
TLDR
The relationship between this morphological change and intracellular monovalent ions during apoptosis is examined, suggesting multiple ways exist to accomplish the same goal of AVD. Expand
Apoptosis and glutathione: beyond an antioxidant
TLDR
This work reformulates emerging paradigms of apoptotic cell death into current understanding of cell death mechanisms and suggests that GSH depletion and post-translational modifications of proteins through glutathionylation are critical regulators of apoptosis. Expand
Ion channel inhibitors block caspase activation by mechanisms other than restoring intracellular potassium concentration
TLDR
The data suggest that reduction in the [K+]i is necessary but not sufficient and that ion channel inhibitors block activation of caspase-3 by two different mechanisms: the inhibitors of K+ channels by reducing cyt c release while flufenamic acid by a different, unrelated mechanism that does not involve cation channels at the plasma membrane.

Glutathione Depletion and Disruption of Intracellular Ionic Homeostasis Regulate Lymphoid Cell Apoptosis*
TLDR
Deregulation of GSH and ionic homeostasis converge in the regulation of apoptosis in lymphoid cells, suggesting that disruption of intracellular ionicHomeostasis is necessary for the progression of apoptotic cell death. Expand
Plasma membrane depolarization and Na,K-ATPase impairment induced by mitochondrial toxins augment leukemia cell apoptosis via a novel mitochondrial amplification mechanism.
TLDR
By using leukemia cells and mouse primary T cells, it is confirmed that mitochondria-to-Na,K-ATPase and PMP depolarization might represent a novel mechanism for mitochondria to amplify death signals in the initiation stage of cells apoptosis induced by mitochondrial toxins. Expand
Transient receptor potential melastatin 4 and cell death
TLDR
Emerging data indicate that TRPM4 plays a crucial role as end executioner in the accidental necrotic death of ATP-depleted or redox-challenged endothelial and epithelial cells, both in vitro and in vivo. Expand
Cell volume regulation: physiology and pathophysiology
TLDR
Recent major developments in the field are summarized, and significant progress has been made with respect to the nature of the sensors, transducers and effectors that convert a change in cell volume into a physiological response. Expand
Apoptosis. Signaling pathways and cell ion and water balance
Current data on the alteration of the monovalent ion balance, pH and the membrane potential during apoptosis are summarized and considered with respect to ionic mechanisms of the apoptotic cellExpand
Glutathione Depletion Is Necessary for Apoptosis in Lymphoid Cells Independent of Reactive Oxygen Species Formation*
TLDR
A necessary and critical role is document for the first time for GSH loss in apoptosis and the relationship between GSH depletion, the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS), and the progression of apoptosis is evaluated. Expand

The targeting of K+ channels are discussed as a potential therapeutic tool in modulating apoptosis to maintain the balance between cell proliferation and cell death that is essential to the normal development and function of an organism. Expand
Plasma Membrane Depolarization without Repolarization Is an Early Molecular Event in Anti-Fas-induced Apoptosis*
TLDR
Diverse apoptotic stimuli caused a rapid cellular depolarization of Jurkat T-cells that occurs prior to and after cell shrinkage, and the inability of cells to repolarize via inhibition of the Na+/K+-ATPase is a likely regulatory component of the death process. Expand
Opening of plasma membrane voltage-dependent anion channels (VDAC) precedes caspase activation in neuronal apoptosis induced by toxic stimuli
TLDR
It appears that there might be a dual role for this protein in the plasma membrane: (1) maintenance of redox homeostasis in normal cells and (2) promotion of anion efflux in apoptotic cells. Expand
Plasma membrane potential in thymocyte apoptosis.
TLDR
It is found that blockade of plasma membrane K+ channels by tetrapentylammonium (TPA), which leads to a DeltaP sip collapse, can prevent the thymocyte apoptosis induced by exposure to the glucocorticoid receptor agonist dexamethasone, the topoisomerase inhibitor etoposide, gamma-irradiation, or ceramide.

A Primary Role for K+ and Na+ Efflux in the Activation of Apoptosis*
TLDR
Analysis of K+ and Na+ ion content of individual cells by flow cytometry revealed that the intracellular ionic strength of apoptotic cells decreased substantially from their non-shrunken counterparts, and data show that the efflux of ions plays a necessary and perhaps a pivotal role in the cell death program.

Dual roles of plasmalemmal chloride channels in induction of cell death
TLDR
The volume regulatory anion channel plays, unless impaired, a cell-rescuing role in the necrotic process by ensuring RVD after swelling induced by necrotics insults, whereas normotonic activation of the anionChannel plays acell-killing roles in the apoptotic process by triggering AVD following stimulation with apoptosis inducers.
