B cell antigen receptor (BCR) cross-linking promotes proliferation and survival of mature B cells. Phosphoinositide-3-kinase-mediated down-regulation of pro-apoptotic and anti-mitogenic genes such as the Foxo family of transcription factors is an important component of this process. Previously, we demonstrated that BCR signaling decreases expression of(More)
BCR cross-linking promotes mature B cell proliferation and survival. PI3K-mediated down-regulation of proapoptotic and antimitogenic genes such as forkhead box transcription factor class O 1 (FOXO1) is an important component of this process. Previously, BCR-induced phosphorylation of FOXO1 was shown to lead to a block in nuclear localization and subsequent(More)
B-1 cells are important players in the first line of defense against pathogens. According to current models for the origin of B-1 cells, they either represent a separate lineage from conventional B-2 cells or differentiate from conventional B-2 cells via an intermediate, B-1(int), in response to positive selection by antigen. Here we show that Btk, a Tec(More)
The pre-BCR and the BCR regulate B cell development via a signalosome nucleated by the adaptor protein B cell linker protein (BLNK). Formation of this complex facilitates activation of phospholipase C (PLC) gamma2 by Bruton's tyrosine kinase (Btk). To determine whether Btk and PLCgamma2 also have separate functions, we generated Btk(-/-)PLCgamma2(-/-) mice.(More)
