Influx of calcium through a redox sensitive plasma membrane channel in thymocytes causes early necrotic cell death induced by the epipolythiodioxopiperazine toxins

Hurne, Alanna; Chai, Christina; Moerman, Katherine; Waring, Paul

Description

Gliotoxin, a member of the epipolythiodioxopiperazine (ETP) class of toxins, induces both apoptotic and necrotic cell death in a concentration-dependent manner. Whereas the specific trigger for apoptotic death caused by these toxins is unclear, the reactive disulfide bond in the ETP toxins is required for biological activity. Thus it is likely that it is the interaction of this disulfide moiety with macromolecules in cells that was responsible for activity of ETP toxins. Here we present...[Show more]
