    Abstract: Objective
    The present study examined the effect of zinc at concentrations of the apoptotic signaling pathway and immune function of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs).

    PBMCs from healthy subjects were treated in vitro with various zinc concentrations to imitate different serum statuses of physiologic (2 to 15 μM) and pharmacologic (15 to 100 μM) concentrations to higher than 100 μM and analyzed their expressions of cytokines and apoptotically related factors.

    Although a normal physiologic concentration of zinc had no effect on immunologic function or apoptosis of PBMCs, a pharmacologic concentration (100 μM) or higher affected both functions. Zinc decreased cell proliferation at concentrations higher than 100 μM and stimulated cytokine expression at concentrations of at least 100 μM. Further, at concentrations of at least 100 μM, apoptosis was induced, and expressions of caspase-3 and proapoptotic genes, including Fas (FasL) and c-fos, which trigger apoptosis through receptor-mediated extrinsic and mitochondrion-mediated apoptotic pathways, respectively, were increased. At concentrations at least 300 μM, expressions of antiapoptotic factors nuclear factor-κB, Bcl-2, and Bcl-XL were markedly decreased.

    Zinc stimulates cytokine expression and induces apoptosis of PBMCs from healthy subjects only at concentrations equal to or greater than the serum pharmacologic range. Receptor-mediated extrinsic and mitochondrial-mediated intrinsic pathways are involved in this zinc-induced apoptosis.
