Abstract [en]

Src homology 2 domain-containing protein tyrosine phosphatase substrate-1 (SHPS-1) is a transmembrane protein predominantly expressed in macrophages. The binding of CD47 on RBCs to SHPS-1 on macrophages is implicated in inhibition of phagocytosis of the former cells by the latter. We have now shown that forced expression in mouse RAW264.7 macrophages of a mutant version (SHPS-1-4F) of mouse SHPS-1, in which four tyrosine phosphorylation sites are replaced by phenylalanine, markedly promoted Fc gammaR-mediated phagocytosis of mouse RBCs or SRBCs. Forced expression of another mutant form (SHPS-1-deltaCyto) of mouse SHPS-1, which lacks most of the cytoplasmic region, did not promote such phagocytosis. Similarly, forced expression of a rat version of SHPS-1-4F, but not that of rat wild-type SHPS-1 or SHPS-1-deltaCyto, in RAW264.7 cells enhanced Fc gammaR-mediated phagocytosis of RBCs. Tyrosine phosphorylation of endogenous SHPS-1 as well as its association with Src homology 2 domain-containing protein tyrosine phosphatase-1 were not markedly inhibited by expression of SHPS-1-4F. Furthermore, the attachment of IgG-opsonized RBCs to RAW264.7 cells was markedly increased by expression of SHPS-1-4F, and this effect did not appear to be mediated by the interaction between CD47 and SHPS-1. These data suggest that inhibition by SHPS-1 of phagocytosis in macrophages is mediated, at least in part, in a manner independent of the transinteraction between CD47 and SHPS-1. In addition, the cytoplasmic region as well as tyrosine phosphorylation sites in this region of SHPS-1 appear indispensable for this inhibitory action of SHPS-1. Moreover, SHPS-1 may regulate the attachment of RBCs to macrophages by an as yet unidentified mechanism.
