Summary The effect of interferon (IFN)-γ and/or lipopolysaccharide (LPS) on Fas-mediated cell death with anti-Fas agonistic antibody in vascular endothelial cells was examined using a mouse END-D cell line. Anti-Fas agonistic antibody exhibited cytotoxic actions on END-D cells. Fas-mediated cell death was enhanced by LPS or IFN-γ. The combination of IFN-γ and LPS significantly enhanced cell death compared to IFN-γ or LPS alone. IFN-γ and LPS augmented cell surface expression of Fas, but not tumour necrosis factor (TNF) receptor 1. Inhibitors of p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) prevented augmentation of Fas expression in IFN-γ and LPS-treated END-D cells. IFN-γ and LPS-treated END-D cells did not become susceptible to TNF-α or nitric oxide-mediated cytotoxicity. IFN-γ and LPS thus appear to augment selectively Fas expression via activation of p38 MAPK and enhance Fas-mediated cell death in END-D cells. Furthermore, administration of IFN-γ and LPS into mice induced in vivo expression of Fas on vascular endothelial cells and Fas ligand (FasL) on peripheral blood leucocytes. The relationship between enhancement of Fas-mediated cell death by IFN-γ and LPS and the development of vascular endothelial injury is discussed.
