Cross-linking of human T cell receptor proteins: association between the T cell idiotype beta subunit and the T3 glycoprotein heavy subunit.

Bifunctional cross-linking reagents DSP, DSS, and BSOCOES were used to cross-link 125I-surface-labeled viable T lymphocytes. The cross-linked cells were solubilized in Nonidet-P40, immunoprecipitated with anti-Ti (monoclonal antibody T40/25) or anti-T3 (monoclonal antibodies UCHT-1 or OKT3), and analyzed by SDS-PAGE. With all three cross-linkers, the intact cross-linked products obtained with monoclonal antibody T40/25 from HPB-ALL cells were 20-30 kd heavier than the Ti dimer (Mr 80,000). When the DSP cross-linked product was isolated using either anti-Ti or anti-T3 monoclonal antibodies and then cleaved, bands having molecular weights identical with both the Ti and T3 subunits were obtained. The two-dimensional SDS-PAGE analysis (nonreducing followed by reducing conditions) of the DSS and BSOCOES cross-linked products revealed the specifically cross-linked bands to have Mr 40,000 and Mr 28,000. These data indicate that the Ti molecule and the T3 molecule are spatially associated on the cell surface and suggest the predominant association is between the Ti beta subunit (Mr 40,000) and the T3 heavy subunit (Mr 28,000).[1]
