Systematic name M6926
Brief description Genes down-regulated in B lymphocytes: control versus anti IgM and cell anti IgM and CpG oligodeoxynucleotide 1826.
Full description or abstract We have previously shown that rheumatoid factors (RF) produced by Fas-deficient autoimmune-prone mice typically bind autologous IgG2a with remarkably low affinity. Nevertheless, B cells representative of this RF population proliferate vigorously in response IgG2a/chromatin immune complexes through a mechanism dependent on the sequential engagement of the BCR and Toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9). To more precisely address the role of both receptors in this response, we analyzed the signaling pathways activated in AM14 B cells stimulated with these complexes. We found that the BCR not only serves to direct the chromatin complex to an internal compartment where it can engage TLR9 but also transmits a suboptimal signal that in combination with the signals emanating from TLR9 leads to NF-kappa-B activation and proliferation. Importantly, engagement of both receptors leads to the upregulation of a group of gene products, not induced by the BCR or TLR9 alone, that include IL-2. These data indicate that autoreactive B cells, stimulated by a combination of BCR and TLR9 ligands, acquire functional properties that may contribute to the activation of additional cells involved in the autoimmune disease process.
