Abstract

Recent studies have demonstrated that neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM) is involved in multiple adhesive interactions with several different classes of ligands on the cell surface and in the extracellular matrix. One of these ligands is fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) that is expressed on neural cells. While it is known that CD56 is a molecular isoform of NCAM expressed on human NK cells and a subset of T cells, it remains poorly characterized, with its ligand unidentified. Therefore, we were prompted to examine if CD56 molecules on NK cells interact with FGFR expressed on T cells. We demonstrate that ligation of FGFR1β on J.C2-14 Jurkat T cells by CD56 on fixed NK-92 cells costimulates TCR/CD3-triggered IL-2 production. CD56-binding mAbs inhibited the costimulatory effect of NK-92 cells in 50-75%. Flow cytometric analysis and cell adhesion assays showed that FGFR1β/Fc and FGFR2β/Fc chimeric proteins bind to NK-92 cells. The binding of FGFR1β/Fc protein to CD56 molecules was verified by immunoprecipitation of CD56 with anti-CD56 mAb followed by Western blotting with FGFR1β/Fc. These findings suggest that ligation of FGFR1 by CD56 may contribute to the interaction between NK cells and T cells that we have postulated in our previous studies.
