  • Explain function of CD45 (dephosphorylation of C-terminal regulatory tyrosine of Src-kinases). Say that Src-kinases are important in initiating immunoreceptor signaling Stress that CD45 is thus positive regulator of immunoreceptor signaling Surprisingly, not much defect in B and M cells

    1. 1. Microbiology 204 TCR Signal Transduction Art Weiss October 9, 2009
    2. 2. Naïve T cell Clonal T cell progeny with effector functions
    3. 3. Key Points: 1. T cell activation occurs during a complex cell-cell interaction 2. Stimulation of a G O T cell results in cell cycle progression as well as enormous metabolic and synthetic changes as well as cell enlargement 3. Activation is initiated by the TCR, but also requires multiple other receptors involved in intercellular interactions 4. Key event is the production of lymphokines and the cellular response to them 5. End result is the clonal expansion and acquisition of effector functions
    4. 4. Complexity of the T Cell : Antigen Presenting Cell Interaction
    5. 5. T Cell Target Cell MTOC Polymerized Actin T Cells Polarize During Antigen- Specific Recognition 2. MTOC and microtubules polarize 3. Actin cytoskeleton polymerizes and polarizes 4. Requires TCR signals: Rac/Cdc42 activation and Ca 2+ elevation (calcineurin- and CaMK- independent events) 5. Polarization of cytoskeletal elements contribute to polarized secretion of cytolytic granules or lymphokines 1. T cell polarizes, APC does not

    9. 9. Signaling Occurs in TCR Microclusters at the Periphery of the Synapse Yokosuka et al., Nature Immunol. 6, 1253, 2005
    10. 10. Function(s) of the Immunological Synapse? 1. Signal Initiation : probably not P-tyr and Calcium responses precede mature synapse formation 2. Signal enhancement : perhaps But no biochemical correlate and mature synapse does not appear to be required (CD2-AP KO signals better than wt but does not form synapse) Peripheral microclusters appear to be most active signaling complexes 3. Directed secretion : fits well Directed secretion by CTL and Th cells makes teological sense and has been well documented 4. Receptor downmodulation : likely Recent modeling and CD2-AP KO data support this New data on TCR microclusters also supportive
