|Abstract: ||T cells show rapid reorganization of cytoskeleton in response to antigenic stimulation. The molecular mechanisms by which TCR-CD3 regulates actin cytoskeleton are not well defined. Here we show that a type II PtdIns 4-kinase associates with cytoskeletal fraction in splenic lymphocytes in response to Con A. Protein tyrosyl phosphorylation of type 11 PtdIns 4-kinase appears to be the mechanism for its association with cytoskeleton. Over-Jay blots suggest that the enzyme binds to TCR-CD3 chain in the cytoskeletal fraction. Anti-TCR-CD3 C antibodies competitively inhibit PtdIns 4-kinase association with TCR-CD3 chain. Immunodepletion of TCR-CD3 zeta decreases PtdIns 4-kinase activity in the cytoskeletal fraction with a concomitant increase in PtdIns 4-kinase activity in anti-TCR-CD3 zeta immunoprecipitates. We propose that the association of type II PtdIns 4-kinase with TCR-CD3 chain may bring the enzyme into close proximity of actin and a possible regulation of actin polymerization through localized production of PtdIns4P and PtdIns(4,5)P-2.
