ABSTRACT
The effect of B cell receptor (BCR) density on anti-BCR-induced apoptosis was assessed in Ramos cell lines, expressing low, medium, or high levels of surface IgM (sIgM[sup LO], sIgM[sup MED], sIgM[sup HI]). All cells required a 6- μg/ml threshold of anti-IgM to elicit apoptosis. Anti-IgM treatment of sIgM[sup LO] cells induced growth inhibition and limited dose-independent apoptosis. Anti-IgM treatment of sIgM[sup MED] cells induced dose-independent death with a 32-h lag. Ligation of the BCR in the sIgM[sup HI] cells induced rapid apoptosis beginning by 6 h, which was dose-dependent. Secondary crosslinking reagents did not affect apoptosis, and this effect was independent of anti-IgM concentration, time, or sIgM density. These results suggest that the response to BCR engagement strongly depends on the cell surface receptor density.

    We examined the role of BCR cell membrane redistribution in anti-IgM–induced apoptosis in three human B cell lines, RA#1, 2G6, and MC116, that differ in their relative levels of sIgM expression. The apoptotic response was found to be dependent on the nature of the anti-IgM and the cell...

    B cell receptor (BCR) cross-linking induces tyrosine phosphorylation and activation of focal adhesion kinase (FAK), suggesting the role of this molecule in BCR-transduced signaling. The nature of FAK function in BCR-induced apoptosis of WEHI 231 lymphoblastoid cells was studied by overexpressing...

    In this review, we discuss how protozoan parasites alter immature and mature B cell compartment. B1 and marginal zone (MZ) B cells, considered innate like B cells, are activated during protozoan parasite infections, and they generate short lived plasma cells providing a prompt antibody source....

    During their development, B and T cells with self-reactive antigen receptors are generally deleted from the repertoire to avoid autoimmune diseases. Paradoxically, innate-like B-1 cells in mice are positively selected for self-reactivity and form a pool of long-lived, self-renewing B cells that...
