Steps, for example IL-2 production [13,37,38,39] or T cell proliferation [37]. On the contrary, other reports suggested that LYPW is a loss of function variant [15,16]. In the present study, we have found that LYPW behaves similarly to LYPR in the context of TCR signaling. Therefore, our data support a third possibility, i.e., LYPW is neither a gain- nor a loss-of-function in the context of TCR signaling. According to our results, mutations that reduced or abolished this interaction do not affect to the capacity of these proteins to regulate TCR signaling. Thus, a combination of mutants like CSK-W47A and LYPW still cooperate to further reduce TCR signaling indicating that cooperation of LYP and CSK on TCR signaling is not based on a direct physical interaction. In this sense, it is worthy to mention here that removal of the CSK binding motif in PTP-PEST, another PEST phosphatase, had no consequence for PTP-PEST regulatory role in B cells [40]. A recent work has shown that overexpression of CSK SH3 domain reduces TCR signaling, effect that the authors explained by its inhibition of the interaction between endogenous LYP and CSK. These data show that LYP inhibition of TCR signaling does not require CSK binding, in agreement with our data. A change in the mobility of LYP in SDS-PAGE after PV treatment prompted us to study LYP phosporylation. In this respect, we have shown that LYP is phosphorylated on Tyr upon TCR stimulation, being LCK the kinase 18325633 mainly responsible for LYP phosphorylation in T cells. Our data on LYP phosphorylation agrees with a recent report [14], although there are discrepancies, for example in the kinetics of LYP phosphorylation, which seems delayed in our assays, probably due to the different cell lines used in each case. The major sites phosphorylated by LCK appeared to be Tyr526 and Tyr536. However, it remains elusive the role of Tyr phosphorylation for LYP function in TCR signaling, as mutation of several Tyr to Phe, including Tyr526 and Tyr536, did not alter the negative regulatory role of LYP in TCR signaling. In summary, the data collected in this report reveals that LYP/ CSK interaction is dynamic and is not based solely on a direct binding between a PRM and an SH3 domain, being additional mechanisms involved in this interaction. Furthermore, the interaction of CSK and LYP in resting cells is increased upon TCR engagement by a mechanism that implicates the SH2 domain ofCSK and probably LYP Tyr phosphorylation by LCK. Although the critical role played by LYP in TCR signaling is well documented, it is far from being clear the function of the LYP/ CSK complex as well as the consequences of the R620W polymorphism for T cell physiology. In this regard, it will be essential clarifying the physiological role played by LYP in the immune system to determine how LYP function is altered by this polymorphism.Supporting InformationFigure S1 Activation of PBLs tested by Western blot.
