Identification of teleost Thy-1 and association with the microdomain/lipid raft reggie proteins in regenerating CNS axons


Deininger, S O; Rajendran, L; Lottspeich, F; Przybylski, M; Illges, H; Stuermer, C A O; Reuter, A (2003). Identification of teleost Thy-1 and association with the microdomain/lipid raft reggie proteins in regenerating CNS axons. Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience, 22(4):544-554.

Abstract

During regeneration, retinal ganglion cell axons in fish upregulate a cell surface protein that is recognized by the monoclonal antibody (mAB) M802. M802 antigen appeared to be linked to the intracellular, membrane-associated lipid raft/microdomain proteins reggie-1 and reggie-2 that were previously shown to be reexpressed in axon-regenerating neurons [Development 124 (1997), 577]. Here, we report the isolation of the M802 antigen and its identification as the teleost homolog of mammalian Thy-1. Fish Thy-1 is detected in the same detergent-insoluble lipid raft fractions from a fibroblast cell line and from axon regenerating retinae as reggie-1 and 2. Importantly, mAB M802 coimmunoprecipitates reggie-1 and 2 from this lipid raft fraction, implying that fish Thy-1 and reggies interact. This correlates with their colocalization in growing cell processes after M802 antigen/Thy-1 activation with mAB M802. These findings suggest a role of clustered M802 antigen/Thy-1 in reggie raft microdomains for cell growth and axon regeneration.
