In this study we analyzed the interaction of prion protein PrPC with components of glycosphingolipid-enriched microdomains in lymphoblastoid T cells.

PrPC is present in microdomains, since it coimmunoprecipitates with GM3 and the raft marker GM1.

Abstract

In this study we analyzed the interaction of prion protein PrPC with components of glycosphingolipid-enriched microdomains in lymphoblastoid T cells. PrPC was distributed in small clusters on the plasma membrane, as revealed by immunoelectron microscopy. PrPC is present in microdomains, since it coimmunoprecipitates with GM3 and the raft marker GM1. A strict association between PrPC and Fyn was revealed by scanning confocal microscopy and coimmunoprecipitation experiments. The phosphorylation protein ZAP-70 was immuno-precipitated by anti-PrP after T cell activation. These results demonstrate that PrPC interacts with ZAP-70, suggesting that PrPC is a component of the multimolecular signaling complex within microdomains involved in T cell activation.
