1 1. General themes of transmembrane signaling - clustering and phosphorylation -  receptor protein tyrosine kinases  and  receptor-assoicated protein tyrosine kinases  2. Signaling molecules adaptor proteins, GEF and small G proteins, PLC- , 3. TCR and BCR structure 4. One step before activation 5. BCR signaling 6. TCR signaling

2 General Principles of Transmembrane Signaling 1. Binding of antigen leads to clustering of antigen receptors on lymphocytes 2. Clustering of antigen receptors leads to activation of intracellular signal molecules 3. Phosphorylation of receptor cytoplasmic tails by tyrosine kinases concentrates intracellular signaling molecules around the receptors 4. intracellular signaling components recruited to activated receptors transmit the signal onward from the membrane and amplify it

3 Cross-Linking of antigen receptors is the first step in lymphocyte activation

4 These enzyme domains are normally inactive, but when brought together by receptor clustering they are able to activate each other by trans-phosphorylation. Once activated, these tyrosine kinases can phosphorylate and activate other cytoplasmic signaling molecules. Receptor Protein-Tyrosine Kinases Receptor with Intrinsic Tyrosine Kinase Activity

7 Association of Downstream Signaling Molecules with Receptor Protein-Tyrosine

8 Adaptor Proteins

9 Adaptor proteins are specialized signaling molecules that usually have no enzymatic activity themselves. Adaptor Proteins


11 Small G proteins are switched from inactive to active states by Guanine-nucleotide Exchange Factors (SOS, Vav). Most of the time, Ras is in the inactive state owing to its intrinsic GTPase activity

12 epinephrine = adrenaline  - adrenergic receptor Gs: GTP-binding stimulatory G protein Small G Proteins Are Different from GTP-binding Stimulatory G proteins

13 phospholipase C-  PLC-  has two SH2 domains and phosphorylation of a tyrosine residue in PLC-  activates it.

15 phosphorylation of the tyrosines in ITAMs serves as the first intracellular signal indicating that the lymphocyte has detected its specific antigen. YXX[L/V]X 6-9 YXX[L/V] Receptor without Intrinsic Tyrosine Kinase Activity BCR TCR

20 CD4 binds MHC class II molecules at a site on the  2 domain through a region that lies mainly on a lateral face of the first domain (D1)

21 1.Cytoplasmic domain of the TCR heterodimer is 5-12 a.a. long 2.The signal transduction function is carried out by a CD3 complex 3.CD3 complex composed of CD3 , CD3 , CD3 , and CD3 


23 Receptor without Intrinsic Tyrosine Kinase Activity receptor-associated tyrosine kinase: The antigen receptor of lymphocytes are associated with receptor- associated tyrosine kinase, mainly of the Src family, which bind to receptor tails via their SH2 domain TCR BCR

29 B-cell co-receptor is a complex of three proteins CD19, CD21, and CD CD19 is expressed on all B cells from an early stage in their development, before CD21 and CD81 are expressed, and it appears to contribute to signaling through the B-cell receptor even in the absence of co-ligation through CD CD19 -/- mice B cells from mice that lack CD19 fail to proliferate in response to B-cell receptor cross-linking and do not fully activate the intracellular signaling pathways normally generated when the B-cell receptor is cross-linked. 3. These experiments suggest that CD19 can associate with the B-cell receptor, either constitutively or after receptor activation, and contribute to signaling even when the co-receptor has not been engaged through CD21 binding to complement.       Vav

It functions by recruiting one or other of the inhibitory phosphatases SHP-1, SHP-2 and SHIP. 2. SHIP is an inositol phosphatase and removes the 5 ’ phsophate from PI-3,4,5-P. it is thought to inhibit the activation of PLC-  by inhibiting the recruitment of the Tec family of kinases, including Btk and Itk, and thus the production of DAG and IP3 and the associated mobilization of calcium SHP-2
