B Cell Receptor Signaling by Tomohiro Kurosaki, Jürgen Wienands

By Tomohiro Kurosaki, Jürgen Wienands

This quantity information our present figuring out of the structure and signaling functions of the B cellphone antigen receptor (BCR) in well-being and affliction. the 1st chapters assessment new insights into the meeting of BCR parts and their association at the mobilephone floor. next contributions specialise in the molecular interactions that attach the BCR with significant intracellular signaling pathways reminiscent of Ca2+ mobilization, membrane phospholipid metabolism, nuclear translocation of NF-kB or the activation of Bruton’s Tyrosine Kinase and MAP kinases. those components orchestrate cytoplasmic and nuclear responses in addition to cytoskeleton dynamics for antigen internalization. in addition, a key mechanism of the way B cells consider their cognate antigen is mentioned intimately. Altogether, the discoveries offered offer a greater knowing of B telephone biology and aid to give an explanation for a few B cell-mediated pathogenicities, like autoimmune phenomena or the formation of B telephone tumors, whereas additionally paving the best way for ultimately battling those diseases.

Interestingly, studies on TCR activation have suggested that the activation of the TCR involves the convergence of pre-organized TCR “protein islands” with the protein island of linker for activation of T-cells (Lat), a key adaptor for TCR signaling (Lillemeier et al. 2006). Although the BCR may not necessarily interact with its coreceptors and signaling adaptors following the TCR model, the dissociation of BCR oligomers would enhance its chance to meet with those molecules and might be an important step in BCR signal initiation.

1991; Reth 1992). However, these structural considerations become obsolete if one considers that the single Igα/Igβ heterodimer may not bind to only one side of the mIg. When we compare the TM region of Igα and Igβ, which most likely also cross the membrane as one α-helix, it appears that they also contain conserved amino acids lying on the same sides of the TM helices (Fig. 3a). It is thus possible that in the plasma membrane, both Igα and Igβ interact with one chain of the mHC by this conserved side.
