A phosphoinositide kinase that can phosphorylate phosphatidylinositol (PtdIns) is present in 4G10 monoclonal antibody (mAb) phosphotyrosine immunoprecipitates isolated from T cells activated via the T cell antigen receptor (TCR).CD3 complex. This PtdIns kinase is not the PtdIns 3-kinase that associates with activated protein tyrosine kinases in fibroblasts, since Western blotting and immunoprecipitation experiments with antibodies specific for the p85 alpha subunit of the PtdIns 3-kinase indicate that this polypeptide is not immunoprecipitated by the 4G10 mAb from TCR.CD3-activated Jurkat cells. Moreover, immunoprecipitated PtdIns 3-kinase isolated from T cells with p85 antibodies is inhibited when PtdIns is presented in Nonidet P-40, whereas the PtdIns kinase activity present in 4G10 mAb phosphotyrosine immunoprecipitates is enhanced in the presence of Nonidet P-40. In vitro kinase assays of PtdIns 3-kinase immunoprecipitated with p85 antibodies from T cells indicate that it associates with a serine kinase that can phosphorylate a p85 polypeptide. However, no protein tyrosine kinase activity capable of tyrosine phosphorylating p85 in vitro associates with p85 alpha immunoprecipitates in quiescent or TCR.CD3-activated T cells. These data suggest that the TCR.CD3 complex does not regulate PtdIns 3-kinase activity by a mechanism that involves protein tyrosine kinases.
