Stimulation of eryptosis by anti-A IgG antibodies

Stimulation of eryptosis by anti-A IgG antibodies

Cellular Physiology and Biochemistry 20(5): 591-600

Anti- A IgG antibodies have previously been shown to stimulate Ca2+ entry into red blood cells. Increased cytosolic free Ca2+ concentration is known to trigger eryptosis, i. e. suicidal erythrocyte death, characterized by exposure of phosphatidylserine at the erythrocyte surface. As macrophages are equipped with phosphatidylserine receptors, they bind, engulf and degrade phosphatidylserine exposing cells. The present experiments have been performed to explore whether anti- A IgGs trigger phosphatidylserine exposure of erythrocytes. Phosphatidylserine exposure was estimated from annexin- V binding as determined in FACS analysis. Exposure to anti- A IgGs ( 0.5 mu g/ ml) indeed significantly increased annexin- V binding in erythrocytes with blood group A, but not in erythrocytes with blood group 0. According to Fluo3 fluorescence, anti- A IgGs increased cytosolic Ca2+ concentration. Whole cell patch clamp recordings revealed the activation of a Ca2+- permeable cation channel following treatment with anti- A- IgGs. Annexin- V binding following anti- A IgG exposure was blunted by Ca2+ removal while anti- A IgG- stimulated cation channel activity was not dependent on extracellular Ca2+. Osmotic shock ( exposure of erythrocytes to 850 mOsm) increased annexin binding, an effect further enhanced by exposure to anti- A IgGs. In conclusion, anti- A IgGs activate erythrocyte cation channels leading to Ca2+ entry and subsequent erythrocyte cell membrane scrambling. The effect most likely contributes to the elimination of erythrocytes following an immune reaction against the A antigen.
