Summary of "Styk1 is specifically expressed in NK1.1 lymphocytes including NK, γδ T and iNKT cells in mice, but is dispensable for their ontogeny and function."

Innate T cells, NK cells, and innate-like lymphocytes (ILCs) share transcriptional signatures that translate into overlapping developmental and functional programs. A prominent example for genes that are highly expressed in NK cells but not in ILCs is serine-threonine-tyrosine kinase 1 (Styk1 encoded by Styk1). We found Styk1 to be specifically expressed in lymphocytes positive for Killer cell lectin-like receptor subfamily B, member 1, also known as CD161 or NK1.1, i.e. in NK cell, αβ iNKT and γδ NKT cell lineages. To investigate the role of Styk1 in the development and function of NK1.1 innate T cell subsets, we generated and analyzed a novel Styk1 mutant mouse line. Furthermore, we validated Styk1 expression in γδ NKT cells and in thymic, but not in peripheral invariant αβ iNKT cells through ex vivo analysis of a concomitantly generated transgenic Styk1 reporter mouse line. Despite the very specific expression of Styk1 in NK cells, γδ NKT cells, and thymic αβ iNKT, its absence did not alter homeostasis and function of these lineages. Thus, Styk1 expression is specific for NK cells and selected NK-like innate T cell subsets, but dispensable for their development and function. This article is protected by copyright.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A CC-type chemokine highly expressed in the lungs, lymph nodes, placenta, and bone marrow; it is also expressed by DENDRITIC CELLS in the GERMINAL CENTER, and peripheral blood MACROPHAGES. It functions as a chemotactic factor that specifically attracts LYMPHOCYTES, especially B-Cells, into lymph node follicles, and naive T-cells towards dendritic cells and activated T-cells. It does not attract MONOCYTES or GRANULOCYTES.

A transmembrane protein belonging to the tumor necrosis factor superfamily that specifically binds to CD27 ANTIGEN. It is found on activated T-LYMPHOCYTES; B-LYMPHOCYTES; and DENDRITIC CELLS where it plays a role in stimulating the proliferation of CD4-POSITIVE T-LYMPHOCYTES and CD8-POSITIVE T-LYMPHOCYTES.

A strain of mice bred specifically as high or low antibody responders.

A 40-45 KDa GPI-linked protein in the SLAM family that consists of two IMMUNOGLOBULIN C2-SET DOMAINS. It is expressed on the surface of a variety of cells with immune functions, including THYMOCYTES; mature B-LYMPHOCYTES and T-LYMPHOCYTES; NATURAL KILLER CELLS; DENDRITIC CELLS; MAST CELLS; and EOSINOPHILS. It binds to CD2 and 2B4 (CD244) receptors to activate and modulate the immunologic response.
