Abstract

Crosslinking of membrane-bound immunoglobulins, which are B-cell antigen receptors, causes proliferation and differentiation of B cells or the inhibition of their growth. The receptor-mediated signaling involves tyrosine phosphorylation of cellular proteins. The Src-like protein-tyrosine kinase Lyn is expressed preferentially in B cells and is an intracytoplasmic constituent of the B-cell antigen receptor complex. Crosslinking of membrane-bound immunoglobulin M with antibody induced rapid increases in the kinase activities of Lyn and Lyn-associated phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase. Crosslinking of B-cell antigen receptor also induced association of Lyn with an 85-kDa noncatalytic subunit of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase. Thus, Lyn is functionally associated with membrane-bound immunoglobulin M and seems likely to participate in B-cell antigen receptor-mediated signaling.
