Abstract

We have demonstrated that T-cell receptor ζ (ζ) mRNA with a 562-bp deleted alternatively spliced 3′-untranslated region (3′UTR) observed in T cells of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) can lead to a reduction in ζ and TCR/CD3 (J. Immunol., 2003 & 2005). To determine the region in ζ mRNA 3′UTR for the regulation of ζ, ζ mRNA with 3′UTR truncations ligated into pDON-AI was used to infect murine T-cell hybridoma MA5.8 cells, which do not contain ζ. As a Western blot analysis demonstrated the importance of the regions from +871 to +950, containing conservative sequence 1 (CS1), and +1070 to +1136, containing CS2, for the production of ζ, we constructed MA5.8 mutants carrying ζ mRNA 3′UTR with deletions of these regions (ΔCS1 and ΔCS2 mutants). Western blot and FACS analyses showed significant reduction in the cell surface ζ and TCR/CD3 in both these mutants, and IL-2 production was decreased, compared with MA5.8 cells transfected with wild-type ζ mRNA. Furthermore, real-time PCR demonstrated the instability of ζ mRNA with 3′UTR deletions in these MA5.8 mutants. In conclusion, CS1 and CS2 may be responsible for the regulation of ζ and TCR/CD3 through the stability of ζ mRNA in SLE T cells.
