Abstract

We report that activation of phospholipase C (PLC) by cross-linking of the platelet low-affinity Fc gamma receptor II (Fc gamma RII) is inhibited by two structurally distinct tyrosine kinase inhibitors, staurosporine and ST271. This contrasts with PLC activation induced by thrombin and U46619, a thromboxane mimetic, whose receptors have seven transmembrane domains characteristic of G-protein coupled receptors. Several proteins undergo phosphorylation on tyrosine on Fc gamma RII cross-linking upstream of protein kinase C (PKC), Ca2+ and aggregation, including the Fc gamma RII itself. The role of Fc gamma RII phosphorylation in the regulation of PLC is discussed.
