Increasing evidence has shown that death signaling in T cells is regulated in a complicated way. Molecules other than death receptors can also trigger T-cell death. Here, we demonstrate for the first time that P-selectin glycoprotein ligand-1 (PSGL-1) or CD162 molecules cross-linked by an anti-PSGL-1 monoclonal antibody, TAB4, can trigger a death signal in activated T cells. In contrast to classic cell death, PSGL-1-mediated T-cell death is caspase independent. It involves translocation of apoptosis-inducing factor from mitochondria to nucleus and mitochondrial cytochrome c release. Ultrastructurally, both peripheral condensation of chromatin and apoptotic body were observed in PSGL-1-mediated T-cell death. Collectively, this study demonstrates a novel role for PSGL-1 in controlling activated T-cell death and, thus, advances our understanding of immune regulation.
