OBJECTIVE: To analyze the contribution of beta2-glycoprotein I (beta2-GPI) to apoptotic cell recognition by antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL) and macrophages from patients with autoimmune disease. METHODS: Phosphatidylserine expression by Jurkat cells undergoing apoptosis upon CD95 crosslinking or ultraviolet irradiation was verified by confocal microscopy of cells stained with fluorescein isothiocyanate-labeled annexin V. Beta2-GPI was purified by heparin/cationic-exchange chromatography and was biotinylated or used to purify beta2-GPI-specific antibodies by affinity chromatography. Binding to apoptotic cells was assessed by flow cytometry. The clearance of 3H-labeled, apoptotic cells by macrophages was assessed by beta counting. RESULTS: The array of epitopes generated by beta2-GPI association with apoptotic cells specifically targets their recognition and is required for their opsonization by human aPL. Nevertheless, beta2-GPI is not required for apoptotic cell clearance by human macrophages in the absence of aPL. CONCLUSION: The proinflammatory clearance of aPL-opsonized apoptotic cells, but not the nonphlogistic clearance of apoptotic cells by scavenger macrophages, depends on beta2-GPI.
