The recently cloned type II receptor protein tyrosine phosphatase (RPTP) gene hPTP-J is a new member of the MAM (meprin, A5, PTPmicro) domain subfamily. We previously reported that hPTP-J mRNA was detected significantly in Jurkat T lymphoma cells and its expression was completely down-regulated by phorbol myristate acetate (PMA). In this study, we investigated what signaling pathways/molecules are involved in the transcriptional regulation of hPTP-J expression in Jurkat and Molt-4 T cell lines. The hPTP-J transcription was transiently up-regulated 20 min after the addition of PMA (20 ng/ml) to the Jurkat culture, followed by the complete down-regulation in 8 h after PMA addition. The transient up-regulation and the complete down-regulation induced by PMA was blocked by a PKC-specific inhibitor, GF109203X, suggesting that the regulatory effect of PMA on the hPTP-J transcription depends on protein kinase C activation. hPTP-J transcription was down-regulated not only by PMA but also by several signaling modulators including 1-oleoyl-2-acetylglycerol, forskolin, orthovanadate, manumycin and okadaic acid. Therefore, several signaling molecules such as protein tyrosine phosphatases, PP2A/CaMKIV and Ras are required for hPTP-J transcription in Jurkat and Molt-4 cells.
