Example text

As the CD40 cytoplasmic segment does not contain any enzymatic domain, it is likely that the CD4O-mediated protein tyrosine kinase activity occurs through activation of separate kinases. This way of coupling cell surface receptors to intracellular signaling pathways seems to be a general concept which is also used by most cytokine receptors (Taniguchi, 1995). , 1989). Therefore, most results on signal transduction cannot be extrapolated to all B cells, and might explain the sometimes controversial data.

Therefore, most results on signal transduction cannot be extrapolated to all B cells, and might explain the sometimes controversial data. , 1991). Activation of protein tyrosine kinases (PTK) appears important for the transduction of CD40 signals because E'TK inhibitors inhibit B cell aggregation (Kansas and Tedder, 1991) as well as CD40-mediated rescue of germinal center B cells (Knox and Gordon, 1993). , 1994). , 1994). This latter study also suggests that atklbtk might be involved in CD40 signaling, since atk/btkdeficient EBV-transformed B cells derived from XLA patients display altered CD40 responses.

A similar inhibitory effect of CD40 engagement could be demonstrated in vivo in SCID mice bearing these tumor cell lines. The alteration in signal transduction that results in such a negative signal remains to be identified. , 1992). 3. Reed Sternberg Cells Reed Sternberg cells, characteristic of Hodgkin's lymphomas, can bind to CD40-L-expressing cells. , 1995). , 1994). 4. Hemutopoietic Progenitors CD40 activation of CD34' progenitors, isolated either from bone marrow or from cord blood, results in enhanced proliferation as shown by increased [3H]thymidine incorporation and viable cell numbers ( Flores-Romo, submitted for publication).
