The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.

The classical agents (Freund's adjuvant, BCG, Corynebacterium parvum, et al.) contain bacterial antigens. Some are endogenous (e.g., histamine, interferon, transfer factor, tuftsin, interleukin-1). Their mode of action is either non-specific, resulting in increased immune responsiveness to a wide variety of antigens, or antigen-specific, i.e., affecting a restricted type of immune response to a narrow group of antigens. The therapeutic efficacy of many biological response modifiers is related to their antigen-specific immunoadjuvanticity.

Immunotherapy of human tumors with T-cell-activating bispecific antibodies: stimulation of cytotoxic pathways in vivo. (1/629)

Bispecific monoclonal antibodies (Bi-mAbs) specific for a tumor-associated antigen and the CD3 or CD28 antigen on T lymphocytes represent one of the most successful experimental strategies for the immunotherapy of cancer. We report that the in vivo administration of both alpha-CD3/CD30 and alpha-CD28/CD30 Bi-mAbs results in the specific activation of xenotransplanted, resting human T cells infiltrating the CD30-positive Hodgkin's tumor. Bi-mAb treatment resulted in enhanced expression of cytokines such as interleukin 1beta, interleukin 2, tumor necrosis factor type alpha, and activation markers including Ki-67, CD25, and CD45RO in tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes. This antigen-dependent, local T-cell stimulation led to the activation of the cytolytic machinery in T lymphocytes, determined by the up-regulation of mRNA-encoding perforin and the cytotoxic serine-esterases granzymes A and B. The Bi-mAb-induced generation of CTLs depended on the presence of the CD30 antigen and the combined application of both Bi-mAbs. Our findings suggest that the combined application of T-cell-activating Bi-mAbs is able to achieve a tumor site-specific activation of the T-cell cytolytic machinery in vivo. The fact that these cytotoxic cells do not home in tumor-associated antigen-negative tissue and do not enter circulation might explain our previous observations (C. Renner et al., Blood, 87: 2930-2937, 1996) of a high cure rate in preclinical models even at an advanced stage of disease.  (+info)

The T-cell activation markers CD30 and OX40/CD134 are expressed in nonoverlapping subsets of peripheral T-cell lymphoma. (2/629)

The tumor necrosis factor (TNF) receptor family includes several important markers of activation in T cells. We examined expression patterns of two T-cell-associated members of these receptors, namely CD30 and OX40/CD134, in 148 cases of T-cell lymphoma to identify possible objective immunohistochemical criteria for subclassification of these tumors. CD30 expression was characteristic of tumors with an anaplastic (46/47 cases [98%]) or large-cell (10/21 [48%]) morphology and was seen in only scattered cells in other tumor types. In contrast, large numbers of OX40/CD134(+) tumors cells were typical of angioimmunoblastic lymphoma (15/16 [94%]), angiocentric lymphoma (4/4), a subset of large-cell lymphomas (10/21 [48%]), and lymphomas with a prominent histiocytic component (6/7 [86%]). Strong OX40/CD134 and CD30 coexpression was seen in only 4% of tumors, typically those with an anaplastic/Hodgkin's-like appearance. OX40/CD134 expression was characteristic of tumors composed of activated CD4(+) T cells and was not seen in small-cell T-cell lymphomas, lymphoblastic lymphomas, or other tumor types, including B-cell lymphomas or carcinomas. These results suggest that immunostaining for OX40/CD134 may be helpful in subclassification of peripheral T-cell lymphomas and that the patterns of TNF receptor family expression in these tumors may parallel those seen within nonneoplastic helper T-cell subsets.  (+info)

Cerebrospinal fluid concentrations of soluble CD27 in HTLV-I associated myelopathy and multiple sclerosis. (3/629)

OBJECTIVES: Stimulation of T lymphocytes via the T cell receptor strongly enhances CD27 membrane expression and induces the release of a soluble 32 kDa form of CD27 (sCD27). CD27 is a member of the TNF receptor family, a group of molecules that have important roles in lymphocyte differentiation and survival. Raised concentrations of sCD27 have been reported in various immunopathological conditions and there is evidence that this molecule can serve as a marker of T cell activation in vivo. Concentrations of sCD27 in CSF were compared between patients with T cell mediated neurological disease and non-inflammatory controls. Also, the relation of CSF-sCD27 concentrations with clinical disease activity was investigated in patients with multiple sclerosis. METHODS: Four groups were studied: (1) eight patients with HTLV-1 associated myelopathy/ tropical spastic paraparisis (HAM)/TSP), (2) eight HTLV-I carriers, (3) 41 patients with multiple sclerosis, and (4) 43 patients with other neurological disease (OND). Concentrations of CSF-sCD27 were determined by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). RESULTS: Quantification of CSF-sCD27 differentiates patients with HAM/TSP from HTLV-I carriers (p<0.01) and from patients with OND (p<0.001). Moreover, the multiple sclerosis patient group was different from the OND group (p<0.0001). In patients with multiple sclerosis, CSF-sCD27 concentrations were higher in 24 patients with clinically active disease than in 17 with clinically stable disease. In addition, most of the patients with multiple sclerosis with high sCD27 concentrations showed an increase in EDSS, whereas none of the patients with low sCD27 had an EDSS increase. CONCLUSIONS: As a reliable marker of immunological disease activity in inflammatory white matter disease is still not available, it is proposed that quantification of CSF-sCD27 concentrations is a good candidate. Also, it may serve as a tool to stratify neurological diseases in inflammatory and non-inflammatory states.  (+info)

Early reduction of the over-expression of CD40L, OX40 and Fas on T cells in HIV-1 infection during triple anti-retroviral therapy: possible implications for lymphocyte traffic and functional recovery. (4/629)

Fas, CD40L and OX40 are members of the tumour necrosis factor (TNF) receptor superfamily with critical roles in T cell activation and death, B cell function, dendritic cell maturation and leucocyte traffic regulation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of anti-retroviral therapy (HAART) on CD40L, OX40 and Fas expression on freshly isolated peripheral blood T cells by three-colour flow cytometry and compare them with lymphoproliferative responses, peripheral blood cell counts and viral load. Fourteen asymptomatic HIV-1+ patients treated with Lamivudine, Stavudine and Nelfinavir were prospectively investigated sequentially for 48 weeks. At baseline, patients exhibited significantly enhanced proportions and counts of CD40L+ and OX40+ cells within the CD4 subset which were corrected by weeks 8-16 of HAART. Interestingly, in the five patients showing viral load rebound during therapy in spite of increasing CD4 counts, the reduction of the levels of these costimulatory molecules was similarly maintained. Therapy induced a decrease in the over-expression of Fas, particularly in the CD4 subset where normal levels were reached at week 8. This reduction occurred in parallel with the major recovery of lymphoproliferative responses. Higher basal levels and lower reduction of Fas were associated with suboptimal suppression of viraemia. In conclusion, this previously undescribed increased expression of CD40L and OX40 may play a role in the HIV-associated pan-immune activation and represent a possible target for immunointervention, as suggested for several immunologically mediated diseases. Moreover, HAART induced an early correction of the over-expression of Fas, CD40L and OX40 in CD4 T cells which could be involved in the recovery of the cell traffic disturbances and in the T cell renewal capacity.  (+info)

CD28-independent costimulation of T cells by OX40 ligand and CD70 on activated B cells. (5/629)

OX40 and its ligand (OX40L) have been implicated in T cell-dependent humoral immune responses. To further characterize the role of OX40/OX40L in T-B cell interaction, we newly generated an anti-mouse OX40L mAb (RM134L) that can inhibit the costimulatory activity of OX40L transfectants for anti-CD3-stimulated T cell proliferation. Flow cytometric analyses using RM134L and an anti-mouse OX40 mAb indicated that OX40 was inducible on splenic T cells by stimulation with immobilized anti-CD3 mAb in a CD28-independent manner, while OX40L was not expressed on resting or activated T cells. OX40L was inducible on splenic B cells by stimulation with anti-IgM Ab plus anti-CD40 mAb, but not by either alone. These activated B cells exhibited a potent costimulatory activity for anti-CD3-stimulated T cell proliferation and IL-2 production. Anti-CD80 and anti-CD86 mAbs partially inhibited the costimulatory activity, and further inhibition was obtained by their combination with RM134L and/or anti-CD70 mAb. We also found the anti-IgM Ab- plus anti-CD40 mAb-stimulated B cells exhibited a potent costimulatory activity for proliferation of and IL-2 production by anti-CD3-stimulated CD28- T cells from CD28-deficient mice, which was substantially inhibited by RM134L and/or anti-CD70 mAb. These results indicated that OX40L and CD70 expressed on surface Ig- and CD40-stimulated B cells can provide CD28-independent costimulatory signals to T cells.  (+info)

Expression of T cell activation antigen CD134 (OX40) has no predictive value for the occurrence or response to therapy of acute graft-versus-host disease in partial T cell-depleted bone marrow transplantation. (6/629)

CD134 (OX40) is a member of the tumor necrosis factor family which is expressed by activated T lymphocytes. CD134 expression on T cells was monitored during the first 35 days post-transplant in 14 patients, receiving either an HLA-identical sibling bone marrow transplant (BMT), a matched unrelated transplant (MUD-BMT) or an autologous peripheral blood progenitor cell transplant (PBPCT). The sibling and unrelated grafts were partially depleted of T cells. CD134 expression on CD4+ T cells peaked between 7 and 14 days after BMT, with a mean peak value of 45% of CD4+ cells (range 26-70%) over all three patient groups. The observed pattern of CD4+ CD134+ expression, an increase during the first 2 weeks post-BMT followed by a gradual decline towards values of 15-40%, was similar in all groups. No difference in the kinetics of CD134 expression by CD4+ T cells was observed between the patients that did or did not develop graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), nor did the clinical effect of any treatment given for GVHD correlate with alterations in CD134 expression by CD4+ T cells. Absolute CD4+,CD134+ T cell numbers showed a more rapid increment after autologous PBPCT than after sibling or MUD transplants. We conclude that expression of CD134+ by CD4+ T lymphocytes cannot serve as a surrogate marker for allo-reactivity. CD134+ expression may reflect lymphocyte regeneration, rather than alloreactivity.  (+info)

Evidence that human CD8+CD45RA+CD27- cells are induced by antigen and evolve through extensive rounds of division. (7/629)

We recently showed that circulating human CD8(+) effector cells have a CD45RA+CD27(-) membrane phenotype. In itself this phenotype appeared to pose a paradox: CD45RA, a marker expressed by unprimed cells, combined with absence of CD27, characteristic for chronically stimulated T cells. To investigate whether differentiation towards the CD45RA+CD27(-) phenotype is dependent on antigenic stimulation and involves cellular division, TCR Vbeta usage and telomeric restriction fragment (TRF) length were analyzed within distinct peripheral blood CD8(+) subsets. FACS analysis showed that the TCR Vbeta repertoire of CD8(+)CD45RA+CD27(-) cells differed significantly from that of unprimed CD8(+)CD45RA+CD27(+) cells. Moreover, in two out of six individuals large expansions of particular Vbeta families were observed in the CD8(+)CD45RA+CD27(-) subset. CDR3 spectrotyping and single-strand confirmation analysis revealed that within the CD8(+)CD45RA+CD27(-) population most of the 22 tested Vbeta families were dominated by oligoclonal expansions. The mean TRF length was found to be 2.3+/-1.0 kb shorter in the CD8(+)CD45RA+CD27(-) subset compared with the unprimed CD8(+)CD45RA+CD27(+) population, but did not differ substantially from that of memory type, CD8(+)CD45RA-CD27(+) T cells. These findings indicate that the CD8(+)CD45RA+CD27(-) cytotoxic effector population consists of antigen-induced, clonally expanded cells and confirm that the expression of CD45RA is not a strict marker of antigen non-experienced T cells.  (+info)

Targeted disruption of Traf5 gene causes defects in CD40- and CD27-mediated lymphocyte activation. (8/629)

TRAF5 [tumor necrosis factor (TNF) receptor-associated factor 5] is implicated in NF-kappaB and c-Jun NH(2)-terminal kinase/stress-activated protein kinase activation by members of the TNF receptor superfamily, including CD27, CD30, CD40, and lymphotoxin-beta receptor. To investigate the functional role of TRAF5 in vivo, we generated TRAF5-deficient mice by gene targeting. Activation of either NF-kappaB or c-Jun NH(2)-terminal kinase/stress-activated protein kinase by tumor necrosis factor, CD27, and CD40 was not abrogated in traf5(-/-) mice. However, traf5(-/-) B cells showed defects in proliferation and up-regulation of various surface molecules, including CD23, CD54, CD80, CD86, and Fas in response to CD40 stimulation. Moreover, in vitro Ig production of traf5(-/-) B cells stimulated with anti-CD40 plus IL-4 was reduced substantially. CD27-mediated costimulatory signal also was impaired in traf5(-/-) T cells. Collectively, these results demonstrate that TRAF5 is involved in CD40- and CD27-mediated signaling.  (+info)

The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the transmembrane 4 superfamily, also known as the tetraspanin family. Most of these members are cell-surface proteins that are characterized by the presence of four hydrophobic domains. The proteins mediate signal transduction events that play a role in the regulation of cell development, activation, growth and motility. This encoded protein is a cell surface glycoprotein and is similar in sequence to its family member CD53 antigen. It is known to complex with integrins and other transmembrane 4 superfamily proteins. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008 ...

M-T271 recognizes CD27, a member of the tumor necrosis factor receptor family. CD27 is expressed at differing levels on memory B cells, a fraction of plasma cells, and on naive and memory T cells, but is not expressed on naive B cells or effector T cells. It is also expressed on NK cells. CD27 therefore represents a useful marker to distinguish certain T and B cell subsets from each other. - Österreich
Activated naive B cells that seed a GC and undergo SHM, Ig isotype switching, and selection by a specific Ag can differentiate into memory B cells or plasma cells. It is generally accepted that the processes of SHM and isotype switching are markers of memory B cells. In human tonsils, memory B cells were historically identified by the loss of IgD together with other markers such as CD38 (5, 10, 11, 17). The case for using IgD and CD38 to separate memory (IgD−CD38−) from naive (IgD+CD38−) and GC (IgD−CD38+) B cells was supported by the finding that the majority of tonsil IgD+ cells expressed unmutated IgV region genes, while those expressed by IgD− cells were mutated (5, 11, 25, 26). Studies using these markers demonstrated that although both naive and memory B cells were in a quiescent state, memory cells exhibited enhanced responses compared to naive B cells in vitro (10, 17, 18, 19, 20). Together, these articles established a scheme to identify human memory B cells.. However, ...
Memory B cells are generated in germinal centers (GC) and contribute to serological immunity by rapidly differentiating into plasma cells. Human memory B cells can be identified by the expression of CD27. These cells exhibit more rapid responses than naive (CD27-) B cells following stimulation in vitro, consistent with the heightened kinetics of secondary responses in vivo. CD27+ B cells express mutated Ig V region genes; however a significant proportion continue to express IgM, suggesting the existence of IgM+ memory B cells. The observation that mutated IgM+CD27+ B cells are generated in humans who cannot form GC led to the conclusions that these cells are generated independently of GC and thus are not memory cells and that they mediate responses to T cell-independent Ag. Although some studies support the idea that IgM+CD27+ B cells participate in T cell-independent responses, many others do not. In this review we will provide alternate interpretations of the biology of IgM+CD27+ B cells and propose
B-cells go through a variety of stages during their development which is discussed in B-cell Development. However, the major functionally important stages to be aware of are the final stages known as the Plasma Cell and Memory B Cell stages. Plasma Cells are B-cells specialized for high levels of antibody synthesis and secretion.

Finally, we compared both the frequency and the numbers of Flu- and CMV-specific T cells before EBV infection with those after resolution of the acute phase of infection. Although acute EBV infection transiently alters the CD8+ T cell compartment, both the frequency and total numbers of CD8+ and CD4+ T cells ,150 d after acute infection are similar to baseline (Fig. 1, D and E), indicating that homeostasis of the peripheral immune compartment is not grossly altered by infectious mononucleosis. Consistent with this, there was no significant loss of either CMV- or Flu- specific memory T cells at later time points after EBV infection (Fig. 5 C). Altogether, these data suggest there is no attrition of peripheral blood memory CD8+ T cells during or after heterologous infections in young adults.. This was surprising because studies in animal models showed attrition of preexisting memory CD8+ T cells in many infections (Selin et al., 1996, 1999; Varga et al., 2001; Smith et al., 2002; Liu et al., 2003; ...
Scientists already knew that the formation of memory B lymphocytes is not as effective in elderly population, putting them at greater risk when facing new pathogens such as the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.. The study in Melameds lab revealed that as part of the aging process, existing memory B lymphocytes use hormonal signals to obstruct the production of new ones. As a result, the immune system becomes better at responding to pathogens it encountered before, but less capable of adapting to new threats.. Seeking a solution for this problem, Melameds lab collaborated with the departments of hematology and rheumatology at Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center and Rambam Health Care Campus in Haifa, respectively.. They examined elderly patients who had undergone B-cell depletion as a treatment for conditions such as lupus, lymphoma and multiple sclerosis. They found that after a significant amount of memory B lymphocytes were removed, the patients immune system was rejuvenated and began producing new, ...

Results Twenty patients were included. Nine were treated by etanercept (ETN), 9 by certolizumab pegol and 2 by adalimumab. The percentage of B cells significantly increased under TNFi from (median [IQR 25-75]) 4.6 (3.5-6.7) to 7.6 (5.2-9.9) % of lymphocytes. No change was observed in the different subtypes of B cells. However, in patients treated with ETN, IgD-CD27- double negative memory B cells significantly increased from 4.6 (2.5-5.4) to 7.7 (6.2-11.0)(p=0.03). The variation of those double negative B cells were significantly different from those observed with monoclonal antibodies (+1.6 [0.0-5.4] vs 0.3 [-1.3-1.8]% of B cells, p=0.02). No change of T, NK, NKT cells was observed in either group. EULAR responders at 3 months had significantly higher percentage of CD27+ memory B cells at baseline (32.9 [25.2-40.6] vs 19.5 [12.3-19.6]% of B cells, respectively; p=0.02), especially IgD+CD27+ pre-switch memory B cells (19.3 [9.8-21.8] vs 5.9 [4.9-9.4]% of B cells, respectively; p=0.02).

Stimulation by antigen through the B cell receptor (BCR) followed by cognate T cell help drives proliferation and differentiation of antigen-specific naı̈ve B lymphocytes into memory B cells and plasma cells (1, 2). Memory B cells carrying somatically mutated immunoglobulin (Ig) genes survive in secondary lymphoid organs in the absence of antigen (3) and mediate secondary immune responses upon rechallenge. In contrast, plasma cells are terminally differentiated, nondividing cells that home to spleen and bone marrow and are the main source of antibody, which they secrete at a high rate. Mouse plasma cells can be long-lived and are able to sustain antibody production for several months in the absence of memory B cells or antigen (4, 5). However, it is less likely that long-lived plasma cells produced during an immune response will maintain a constant supply of specific antibody over a human life-span, because even long-lived plasma cells would eventually need to be replenished over a human ...

In the late 1990s, I was doing a postdoc at the wonderful DNAX Research Institute of Molecular and Cellular Biology in California. Many fundamental discoveries in basic molecular and cellular immunology had been made at DNAX in the 1980s and 90s. To be a young postdoc from Sydney working in that environment was just magic, inspirational, and influential. Toward the end of my postdoc, I was starting to think about returning to Australia for the next phase of my career. Luckily for me, in 1998, I published my first ever paper in JEM (Tangye et al., 1998). This paper identified specific cell surface markers (particularly CD27) that enabled detection (and subsequent isolation and detailed functional analysis) of human memory B cells. I honestly think that having achieved some measure of success during my DNAX postdoc-i.e., a first author JEM paper-played a very important role in my securing a research fellowship awarded by the University of Sydney, which enabled me to return to a position in Sydney ...

The regulatory cyclin, Cyclin T1 (CycT1), is a host factor essential for HIV-1 replication in CD4 T cells and macrophages. The importance of CycT1 and the Positive Transcription Elongation Factor b (P-TEFb) complex for HIV replication is well-established, but regulation of CycT1 expression and protein levels during HIV replication and latency establishment in CD4 T cells is less characterized. To better define the regulation of CycT1 levels during HIV replication in CD4 T cells, multiparameter flow cytometry was utilized to study the interaction between HIV replication (intracellular p24) and CycT1 of human peripheral blood memory CD4 T cells infected with HIV in vitro. CycT1 was further examined in CD4 T cells of human lymph nodes. In activated (CD3+CD28 costimulation) uninfected blood memory CD4 T cells, CycT1 was most significantly upregulated in maximally activated (CD69+CD25+ and HLA.DR+CD38+) cells. In memory CD4 T cells infected with HIV in vitro, two distinct infected populations of p24+CycT1+
Given the genetic diversity of B-cell lymphomas and differential antigen expression patterns across lymphoma subtypes, it is unlikely that a single small molecule or antibody-based therapeutic will effectively treat all categories of NHL. Therefore, the use of therapeutic antibody combinations targeting different tumor antigens is expected to produce a more robust antitumor response. Simultaneously targeting CD20 and the TNFR family member CD40 may be productive, because both are expressed on the majority of B-cell lymphomas and mediate differential signaling events through their cytoplasmic domains. We evaluated the potential of improving rituximab-based therapies in NHL by targeting CD40 with dacetuzumab. In vivo analysis of the dacetuzumab-rituximab combination in the Ramos NHL xenograft model showed the capacity of dacetuzumab to augment rituximab activity. Potential mechanisms of action behind the ability of dacetuzumab to enhance rituximab activity in vivo include improved recruitment of ...

One possibility, however, was that IgM+ memory cells switched immunoglobulin isotype after challenge and contributed to the swIg+ progeny. This possibility was difficult to assess as long as swIg+ memory cells were present at the time of challenge. Therefore, the secondary response was tested in mice that were primed with PE 450 days earlier and contained 100,000 PE-specific IgM+ and scarcely any swIg+ memory cells. These mice generated very few swIg+ cells of any kind after challenge, which indicated that the IgM+ memory cells did not undergo isotype switching. The IgM+ memory cells increased only twofold after challenge (Fig. 4B), in contrast to the robust primary response of naïve IgM+ cells to intraperitoneal injection of PE, which generated many IgM+ and swIg+ germinal center and memory cells (Fig. 4C).. Several lines of evidence suggested that the poor secondary response of IgM+ memory cells was related to anti-PE immunoglobulin present during challenge. Injection of hyperimmune serum ...
