Abstract

A membrane glycoprotein CD4 functions as a coreceptor of a T lymphocyte. The co-receptor function has been attributed to a protein tyrosine kinase, p56(lck), which is activated upon CD4 binding to MHC molecule. In this study, we present evidences that one of the pathways through which CD4 transmits its signal is cytoskeleton association of p56(lck) tyrosine kinase as well as CD4 itself. Cytoskeletal association of both proteins is inhibited by a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, genistein, indicating that tyrosine protein kinase activation is important for cytoskeletal association of CD4 and p56(lck). Cytoskeletal association of these proteins by CD4 cross-linking is not affected by inhibitors of protein kinase C nor PI3-kinase. Taken together, these results suggest that CD4 cross-linking activates a tyrosine kinase which then induces the simultaneous association of CD4 and p56(lck) with cytoskeleton.
