    Cell Immunol 226:95-104. 2003
    ..Collectively these data argue that chB6 may function as a novel death receptor on avian B-lymphocytes and support the use of DT40 as an amenable model to study the signaling involved in chB6-induced apoptosis...

    ..Furthermore, we show that Ab binding to chB6 leads to cleavage of caspase 8, caspase 3, and poly(ADP ribose) polymerase. Overall, these data support the hypothesis that chB6 is a novel death receptor on avian B cells...

    ..By better understanding these issues we can begin to make hypotheses about defects that might lead to the failure to delete defective cells, potentially resulting in leukemia or autoimmune disease. ..
