Abstract

The F-BAR domain containing protein CIP4 (Cdc42 interacting protein 4) interacts with Cdc42 and WASP/N-WASP and is thought to participate in the assembly of filamentous actin. CIP4(-/-) mice had normal T- and B-lymphocyte development but impaired T cell-dependent antibody production, IgG antibody affinity maturation, and germinal center (GC) formation, despite an intact CD40L-CD40 axis. CIP4(-/-) mice also had impaired contact hypersensitivity (CHS) to haptens, and their T cells failed to adoptively transfer CHS. Ovalbumin-activated CD4(+) effector T cells from CIP4(-/-)/OT-II mice migrated poorly to antigen-challenged skin. Activated CIP4(-/-) T cells exhibited impaired adhesion and polarization on immobilized VCAM-1 and ICAM-1 and defective arrest and transmigration across murine endothelial cell monolayers under shear flow conditions. These results demonstrate an important role for CIP4 in integrin-dependent T cell-dependent antibody responses and GC formation and in integrin-mediated recruitment of effector T cells to cutaneous sites of antigen-driven immune reactions.
