Wiest Abstract While zebrafish have for some time been regarded as a powerful model organism with which to study early events in hematopoiesis, recent evidence suggests that it also ideal for unraveling the molecular requirements for T cell development in the thymus.

Lck is a Src-family tyrosine kinase whose activity is essential for T cell activation and development. The phosphorylation of two key tyrosine residues in Lck, Tyr and Tyr , regulate its activation by inducing profound changes in conformation. In vitro, CD45, a leukocyte-specific tyrosine phosphatase, preferentially dephosphorylated Tyr , as opposed to Tyr . The molecular basis for T cell receptor signaling events that lead to differential cellular immune responses has been a fundamental question in immunology. For example, the molecular mechanism governing positive and negative T cell selection during thymocyte development has remained elusive. Furthermore, the mechanisms governing variable T cell receptor-mediated .

In this context, we previously reported that Inhibins are the major Activin ligands expressed in the thymus [ ]. Moreover, both Inhibins and Activins promote DN to DP thymocyte di erentiation during in vitro T cell development of murine fetal thymocytes. In contrast, Activins, but not Inhibins.

Amy Y. Chow, Ira Mellman, in Measuring Immunity, T CELL SELECTION. During thymocyte development, MHCII on thymic cortical epithelium mediates engagement of the T-cell receptor (TCR) on CD4+ cells thereby promoting selection.

Negative selection, or the elimination of thymocytes, occurs when a high affinity interaction occurs between MHCII-peptide and the. The Lck-Cre transgenic mouse uses the proximal promoter of the Lck (lymphocyte protein tyrosine kinase) gene, which is first expressed early in thymocyte development at the double negative stage.

After T cells fully mature, the level of expression of this transgene decreases by approximately 10 fold. We have investigated the potential role of the Lck tyrosine kinase in regulating intracellular signaling during thymocyte development.

While Lck is known to be critical for initial T-cell receptor signaling events, it may have an independent role in regulating intracellular signaling through the function of its SH3 by:   Promoter switching in Epstein-Barr virus during the initial stages of infection of B lymphocytes.

Nature. Jan 19; ()– A Thymocyte is an immune cell present in the thymus, before it undergoes transformation into a T cell. Thymocytes are produced as stem cells in the bone marrow and reach the thymus via the blood.

Thymopoiesis describes the process which turns thymocytes into mature T cells according to either negative or positive selection.

This selection process is vitally important in shaping. Also plays a role in the IL2 receptor-linked signaling pathway that controls the T-cell proliferative response. Binding of IL2 to its receptor results in increased activity of LCK. Is expressed at all stages of thymocyte development and is required for the regulation of maturation events that are governed by both pre-TCR and mature alpha beta TCR.

Recently, Strauss and colleagues (8) showed a requirement for the Lck SH3 domain in optimal T-cell development. In Lck W97A SH3 domain knockin mice. Because c-Myb plays critical roles during thymocyte developm we bred a conditional knockout model based on a tamoxifen-regulated form of Cre (Cre-ER T2) 23.

TCR repertoire is regulated sequentially by three major factors: VDJ recombination, thymic selection, and peripheral homeostasis.

Using mice with Lck-cre-driven conditional deletion of PP4 locus, we show that protein phosphatase 4 (PP4), the product of PP4 gene, is essential for the development of mature T cells, such that thymocyte development is completely blocked at the Author: Ching-Yu Huang, En-Wei Hsing, Fang-Hsuean Liao, Wan-I Hsou, Yu-Jun Lin, Yi-Jyun Jhou.

Alternative promoters usage is an important paradigm in transcriptional control of mammalian gene expression. However, despite the growing interest in alternative promoters and their role in genome diversification, very little is known about how and on what occasions those promoters are differentially regulated.
