RasGRP1 sensitizes an immature B cell line to antigen receptor-induced apoptosis.


RasGRP1 is a guanine nucleotide exchange factor that activates Ras GTPases and is activated downstream of antigen receptors on both T and B lymphocytes. Ras-GRP1 provides signals to immature T cells that confer survival and proliferation, but RasGRP1 also promotes T cell receptor-mediated deletion of mature T cells. We used the WEHI-231 cell line as an… (More)
