The signaling tool box for tyrosine-based costimulation of lymphocytes.


:Triggering lymphocyte effector functions is controlled by a diverse array of immune cell coreceptors that dampen or potentiate the primary activation signal from antigen receptors. Attenuation of lymphocyte activation has been shown to be accomplished by immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibition motifs that upon phosphorylation recruit protein or lipid phosphatases. By contrast, a general concept of signal amplification and/or diversification is still out. However, the recent discovery of antigen receptor-intrinsic costimulation by membrane-bound immunoglobulins in class-switched memory B cells identified a consensus phosphorylation motif that can boost antigen-induced signal chains and is also employed by costimulatory receptors on T and Natural Killer cells to provide secondary signals for cellular activation. Here we define a common basis of tyrosine-based lymphocyte costimulation comprising immunoglobulin tail tyrosine (ITT)-like phosphorylation motifs and their proximal effectors, growth factor receptor-bound protein (Grb) 2 and phosphatidylinositol-3 kinase (PI3K) enzymes of class IA.

  • Peptidases trimming MHC class I ligands.

    abstract::Peptides presented by MHC class I molecules are typically produced through antigen degradation by the proteasome followed by trimming by exopeptidases. According to recent results, these include both aminopeptidases and carboxypeptidases in the cytosol and the endoplasmic reticulum. While cytosolic peptidases have a n...
