Objective. To investigate the early apoptosis that may be detected by Annexin V binding to phosphatidylserine and propidium iodide (PI) exclusion in human monocytes. When studying monocytes in culture, less than 40 % of these cells survive after 7 days. Material and methods. In the first 4 h, 24 % of monocytes in culture develop into Annexin V+/PI− cells. Human monocytes were investigated at 0 h and sorted into Annexin V+ and Annexin V− by FACS after 4 h. Gene expression was examined by microarray analyses. Results. At 4 h, Annexin V+ monocytes versus Annexin V− cells showed 1220 differentially expressed genes. Ingenuity Pathway Analysis disclosed 153 genes related to cell death. Among these were caspase activators, caspase 6, Apaf 2 and FAS, as well as the autophagy gene ATG5. In addition, examination of the most up‐regulated or down‐regulated genes among the 1220 revealed genes involved in other biological processes, as well as genes not yet annotated. These included the non‐annotated genes LOC28480 (fo...

Abstract The death-associated protein Daxx is a multifunctional factor that regulates a variety of cellular processes, including transcription and apoptosis. Several previous reports have indicated that Daxx is induced upon oxidative stress and is then subjected to phosphorylation-based functional modification. However, the precise molecular events underlying these phosphorylation events remain largely unknown. We report in our current study that the peptidyl-prolyl isomerase Pin1 is highly over...

The mammalian immune system has innate and adaptive components, which cooperate to protect the host against microbial infections. The innate immune system consists of functionally distinct 'modules' that evolved to provide different forms of protection against pathogens. It senses pathogens through pattern-recognition receptors, which trigger the activation of antimicrobial defences and stimulate the adaptive immune response. The adaptive immune system, in turn, activates innate effector mechani...

Since programmed cell death was first described by the electron microscopic cellular changes demonstrating an organized form of cell death over 30 years ago, it has undergone a great deal of scrutiny as a potential target for several diseases including cancer. The techniques for the study of apoptosis have evolved accordingly. Methodologies for the study of apoptosis were examined by a MEDLINE search of the English-language literature and are summarized in this review. This review discusses the ...

Elevated expression of tissue transglutaminase (TG2) in cancer cells has been implicated in the development of drug resistance and metastatic phenotypes. However, the role and the mechanisms that regulate TG2 expression remain elusive. Here, we provide evidence that protein kinase Cδ (PKCδ) regulates TG2 expression, which in turn inhibits autophagy, a type II programmed cell death, in pancreatic cancer cells that are frequently insensitive to standard chemotherapeutic agents. Rottlerin, a PKCδ-s...

Comprehensive analysis of the gene expression profiles associated with human monocyte-to-macrophage differentiation and polarization toward M1 or M2 phenotypes led to the following main results: 1) M-CSF-driven monocyte-to-macrophage differentiation is associated with activation of cell cycle genes, substantiating the underestimated proliferation potential of monocytes. 2) M-CSF leads to expression of a substantial part of the M2 transcriptome, suggesting that under homeostatic conditions a defa...

Recent studies have suggested that dendritic cell (DC)-based immunotherapy is one promising approach for the treatment of cancer. We previously studied the clinical toxicity, feasibility, and efficacy of cancer vaccine therapy with peptide-pulsed DCs. In that study, we used granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF)-mobilized peripheral blood monocytes as a cell source of DCs. However, previous investigations have suggested that G-CSF-mobilized peripheral blood monocytes produce reduced level...

Summary The objective of this study was to investigate the occurrence of apoptosis ofmonocytes in an experimental model of multiple trauma and its probable cor-relation to bacterial translocation. Thirty-two rabbits were applied in threegroups: A, controls; B, myotomy of the right femur; and C, myotomy and frac-ture of the right femur. Blood was sampled for the estimation of endotoxins[lipopolysaccharide (LPS)], tumour necrosis factor (TNF)- α , malondialde-hyde (MDA) and isolation of peripheral...

Introduction Based on the central role of the triggering of monocytes for the initiation of the septic cascade, it was investigated whether apoptosis of blood monocytes in septic patients is connected to their final outcome.

Background Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is a autoimmune disease caused by a long-term negative balance between immune-mediated beta-cell damage and beta-cell repair/regeneration. Following immune-mediated damage the beta-cell fate depends on several genes up- or down-regulated in parallel and/or sequentially. Based on the information obtained by the analysis of several microarray experiments of beta-cells exposed to pro-apoptotic conditions (e.g. double stranded RNA (dsRNA) and cytokines), we...

Abstract Among the families of transcription factors expressed at the neural plate border in response to neural crest-inducing signals, Sox proteins have emerged as important players in regulating multiple aspects of neural crest development. Here, we summarize the expression of six Sox genes, namely Sox8, Sox9, Sox10, LSox5, Sox4 and Sox11, in neural crest progenitors and their derivatives, and review some aspects of their function pertaining to neural crest development in several species.

The gravitational force has been constant throughout Earth’s evolutionary history. Since the cell nucleus is subjected to permanent forces induced by Earth’s gravity, we addressed the question, if gene expression homeostasis is constantly shaped by the gravitational force on Earth. We therefore investigated the transcriptome in force-free conditions of microgravity, determined the time frame of initial gravitational force-transduction to the transcriptome and assessed the role of cation channels...

Reports on Gulf War illness (GWI) implicated the use of the pesticide permethrin (PER), and the insect repellent N,N-diethyl-m-toluamide (DEET), in its etiology, as well as pyridostigmine bromide (PB), which was given as a prophylactic treatment against nerve agent exposure. Using Affymetrix microarrays the genomic response of human neuronal SHSY-5Y cells to 10 days of exposure to these agents was characterized and profiles of gene modulation unique to each treatment were demonstrated. In partic...
