The sooni phenotype was identified among N-ethyl-N-nitrosourea (ENU)-mutagenized G3 mice of the pedigree R4654, some of which exhibited a diminished T-independent antibody (IgM) response to NP-Ficoll (Figure 1).
|Nature of Mutation|
Whole exome HiSeq sequencing of the G1 grandsire identified 97 mutations. The diminished T-independent antibody (IgM) response to NP-Ficoll was linked to a mutation in Pik3ap1: a T to C transition at base pair 41,327,909 (v38) on chromosome 19, or base pair 57,162 in the GenBank genomic region NC_000085 encoding Pik3ap1. Linkage was found with a recessive model of inheritance, wherein seven variant homozygotes departed phenotypically from 11 homozygous reference mice and 19 heterozygous mice with a P value of 2.4 x 10-5 (Figure 2). A substantial semidominant effect was also observed (P = 4.06 x 10-5).
The mutation corresponds to residue 1,014 in the NM_031376.3 mRNA sequence in exon 6 of 17 total exons.
The mutated nucleotide is indicated in red. The mutation results in a serine (S) to proline (P) substitution at position 305 (S305P) in the B cell adaptor protein (BCAP) protein, and is strongly predicted by PolyPhen-2 to be damaging (score = 0.999).
|Illustration of Mutations in
Gene & Protein
BCAP shares several structural features with other adaptor proteins including BANK (B-cell scaffold protein with ankyrin repeats), an adaptor for CD40, a protein present on antigen presenting cells (see walla, a mutation in CD40 ligand) and with the Drosophila protein Dof (Downstream of FGF receptor), an adaptor that is essential in FGF-mediated signaling (1;2). The domains of BCAP include: an ankyrin repeat-like sequence (aa 333-401), a predicted coiled-coil forming sequence (aa 636-669), proline-rich sequences (3 in mouse; aa 530-552, 760-808) and a region designated the Dof/BCAP/BANK (DBB) domain (aa 182-318) (3-6) (Figure 3). The proline-rich region at the C-terminus of BCAP facilitates interaction between BCAP and the N-terminal SH3 domains of Src protein tyrosine kinases (PTKs), PLC-γ, and Grb2 (7). Tyrosine motifs (YxNx, YxxV, and YxxM) facilitate the binding of BCAP to Grb2, SHP-2 and BTK/Syk, respectively. Following B cell activation, BCAP is phosphorylated at four tyrosine residues (Y264, Y420, Y445 and Y460) within 4 respective YxxM motifs by BTK and Syk activation (3;8;9).
The sooni mutation results in a serine (S) to proline (P) substitution at position 305 (S305P); residue 305 is within the DBB domain. The function DBB domain remains unknown. The DBB domain may be important for the subcellular localization of BCAP through interactions with other proteins (7). In Drosophila development, the DBB domain of Dof was required for FGF-dependent signal transduction (4). In yeast two-hybrid assays, the DBB domain was required for Dof to interact with the Drosophila FGF receptor, Heartless, and for Dof to homodimerize (3).

In B cell receptor (BCR)-mediated signaling, either transmembrane (i.e. CD19) or cytosolic adaptors (i.e. TC21, Cbl, Gab, B-cell linker (BLNK (see busy) or SLP-65), and BCAP are tyrosine phosphorylated on their YxxM motifs by protein tyrosine kinases (i.e. Btk, Syk and/or Lyn) and subsequently associate with PI3K to amplify and integrate several signaling pathways (6;7;10-13). Upon activation of BCR-mediated signaling, Syk initiates BCAP phosphorylation, while Btk sustains it. Lyn negatively regulates BCAP phosphorylation by initiating the phosphorylation of immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibition motifs (ITIMS) on inhibitory receptor proteins CD22 and PIRB (7;14). BCAP and CD19 have a complementary role in P13K activation: upon BCAP binding to PI3K, there is an upregulation in PI3K activity and PI3K translocates to CD19-bearing lipid rafts rich in PI(4,5)P2 (15;16).
The canonical Pik3ap1 variant, negatively regulates interleukin (IL)-6 (a pro-inflammatory cytokine) and IL-10 (an anti-inflammatory cytokine) production mediated by lipopolysaccharides in T cell-independent B cell immune responses (8). Similar to sothe and BCAP deficient mice, the sooni mice are unable to mount a T-independent B cell response (6). Similarity between the sooni and BCAP-deficient phenotypes is consistent with a strongly hypomorphic or null effect of S305P.
