Recent studies of murine and human B lymphocytes have shown that crosslinking of surface IgM (sIgM) and sIgD stimulates tyrosine phosphorylation of a set of proteins involved in signal transduction. We investigated tyrosine phosphorylation of the sIg-associated proteins MB-1 and B29, and p75HS1 (HS1), and the association of HS1 with MB-1/B29 heterodimers in normal human B cells and a human B lymphoma cell line, B104. Using immunoprecipitation with anti-phosphotyrosine antibodies (Abs) followed by immunoblotting with anti-MB-1 Abs, anti-B29 Abs or anti-HS1 Abs, we demonstrated that MB-1, B29 and HS1 were tyrosine-phosphorylated after sIgM or sIgD crosslinking. Immunoprecipitation with anti-B29 Abs followed by anti-HS1 Abs immunoblotting revealed that HS1 was associated with MB-1/B29 heterodimers after sIgM or sIgD crosslinking. The results showed that HS1 may play an important role in signal transduction through sIgM and sIgD on human B cells.
SciCrunch is a data sharing and display platform. Anyone can create a custom portal where they can select searchable subsets of hundreds of data sources, brand their web pages and create their community. SciCrunch will push data updates automatically to all portals on a weekly basis. User communities can also add their own data to scicrunch, however this is not currently a free service.
