Gary-Gouy H., Harriague J., Dalloul A., Donnadieu E., Bismuth G. strongly implying the involvement of a new CD5-interacting signaling or adaptor protein. Furthermore, we show that upon CD5 ligation there is a profound shift in its distribution from the bulk fluid phase to the lipid raft environment, where it associates with Fyn, Lck, and PAG. We suggest that the relocation of CD5, which we also show is usually capable of forming homodimers, to the proximity of raft-resident molecules enables CD5 to inhibit membrane proximal signaling by controlling the phosphorylation and activity of Fyn, possibly by interfering with the disassembly of C-terminal Src kinase (Csk)-PAG-Fyn complexes during T cell activation. for 10 min at 4 C, and the supernatants were mixed with 100 l of a 10% protein A-Sepharose CL-4B (Amersham Biosciences) slurry and with mAb (1C10 g) or antisera (1C3 l). Samples were incubated for 90 min at 4 C. The beads made up of the immune complexes were washed 3 times in 1 ml of lysis buffer and washed for 2 more rounds in kinase assay buffer (25 mm HEPES and 0.1% detergent). Nonidet P-40 or Triton X-100 assay buffer (30 l) made up of 10 mm MnCl2, 1 mm sodium vanadate, 1 mm NaF, and 50 Ci of (185 KBq) [-32P]ATP was added to the immune complexes, and kinase reactions were allowed to occur for 15 min at 25 C. Reactions were stopped by the addition of 30 l of 2 SDS buffer after which the samples were boiled for 5 min. Products were separated on SDS-PAGE gels, and autoradiography of the dried gels was done with BioMax MR films (Kodak). For reprecipitations, the beads made up of the immune complexes were boiled for 5 min in 2% SDS and diluted 8-fold with lysis buffer. After centrifugation, supernatants were recovered and precleared for 30 min with 100 l of protein A-Sepharose beads. Proteins were reprecipitated with antibodies and protein A-Sepharose beads for 90 min as above. Reprecipitates were washed three times with 1 ml of lysis buffer. Samples were Mouse monoclonal to CD40.4AA8 reacts with CD40 ( Bp50 ), a member of the TNF receptor family with 48 kDa MW. which is expressed on B lymphocytes including pro-B through to plasma cells but not on monocytes nor granulocytes. CD40 also expressed on dendritic cells and CD34+ hemopoietic cell progenitor. CD40 molecule involved in regulation of B-cell growth, differentiation and Isotype-switching of Ig and up-regulates adhesion molecules on dendritic cells as well as promotes cytokine production in macrophages and dendritic cells. CD40 antibodies has been reported to co-stimulate B-cell proleferation with anti-m or phorbol esters. It may be an important target for control of graft rejection, T cells and- mediatedautoimmune diseases boiled for 5 min and subjected to SDS-PAGE. When indicated, a biotinylated peptide made up of the rat CD5 pseudo-immunoreceptor tyrosine-based activation motif sequence (Biotin-AASHVDNEYSQPPRNSRLSAYPALE-OH, purchased from New England Peptide) was also included as a Fyn substrate in the reaction mix at a final concentration of 0.5 g/l, and in this case the kinase reaction was at 30 C for 10 L-Valine min. The biotin-labeled CD5 peptide was recovered using avidin beads (Pierce), and the incorporated [-32P]ATP measured in a Beckman liquid scintillation counter. Cellular Activation Cells were managed in RPMI 1640 L-Valine medium or serum-deprived for 18 h before activation. For activation, cells were washed and resuspended in RPMI 1640 (without FCS) made up of Y-2/178 at 10 g/ml, OKT3 at 2 g/ml, or isotype-matched unfavorable control antibody L-Valine at 10 g/ml. Activation was induced without the use of cross-linking secondary Abs. Cells were managed at 4 C for 15 min and subsequently incubated at 37 C for the indicated time points. Cells were L-Valine then pelleted and lysed for 30 min in ice-cold 1% Nonidet P-40 lysis buffer (10 mm Tris-Cl, pH 7.4, 150 mm NaCl, 1 mm EDTA, 1 mm PMSF, 1% (v/v) Igepal CA-630, and 1 mm sodium orthovanadate). The nuclear pellet was removed by centrifugation at 11,000 for 10 min at 4 C, and the supernatants were subjected to immunoprecipitation or analyzed.
