  Previous studies have demonstrated that Bcl10 (B-cell leukemia/lymphoma 10) is essential for T cell receptor-mediated NF- B activation and subsequent proliferation and interleukin 2 (IL2) production. However, here we demonstrate that, contrary to expectations, Bcl10 is differentially required for T cell activation, including for both proliferation and cytokine production. When CD4+ and CD8+ T cells were divided based on expression levels of CD44, which distinguishes naïve cells (CD44lo) versus those that are antigen-experienced (CD44hi), IL2 production by and proliferation of CD4+CD44lo naïve cells and both subpopulations of CD8+ T cells were clearly Bcl10-dependent, whereas these same functional properties of CD4+CD44hi T cells occurred largely independent of Bcl10. As with the other subpopulations of T cells, CD4+CD44hi T cells did not activate the NF- B pathway in the absence of Bcl10; nevertheless, these CD4+CD44hi antigen-experienced T cells efficiently secreted IL2 after T cell receptor stimulation. Strikingly, therefore, T cell receptor-mediated IL2 production in these cells is NF- B-independent. Our studies suggest that antigen-experienced CD4+ T cells differ from their naïve counterparts and from CD8+ T cells in their ability to achieve activation independent of the Bcl10/NF- B pathway.

  Phospholipase Cγ2 (PLCγ2) is an important signaling effector of multiple receptors in the immune system. Here we show that PLCγ2-deficient mice displayed impaired lymph node organogenesis but normal splenic structure and Peyer`s patches. Receptor activator of NF-κB ligand (RANKL) is a tumor necrosis factor family cytokine and is essential for lymph node organogenesis. Importantly, PLCγ2 deficiency severely impaired RANKL signaling, resulting in marked reduction of RANKL-induced activation of MAPKs, p38 and JNK, but not ERK. The lack of PLCγ2 markedly diminished RANKL-induced activation of NF-κB, AP-1, and NFATc1. Moreover, PLCγ2 deficiency impaired RANKL-mediated biological function, leading to failure of the PLCγ2-deficient bone marrow macrophage precursors to differentiate into osteoclasts after RANKL stimulation. Re-introduction of PLCγ2 but not PLCγ1 restores RANKL-mediated osteoclast differentiation of PLCγ2-deficient bone marrow-derived monocyte/macrophage. Taken together, PLCγ2 is essential for RANK signaling, and its deficiency leads to defective lymph node organogenesis and osteoclast differentiation.
