ResumenT cell antigen receptors (TCRs) and B cell antigen receptors (BCRs) transmit low-grade signals necessary for the survival and maintenance of mature cell pools. We show here that TC21, a small GTPase encoded by Rras2, interacted constitutively with both kinds of receptors. Expression of a dominant negative TC21 mutant in T cells produced a rapid decrease in cell viability, and Rras2-/- mice were lymphopenic, possibly as a result of diminished homeostatic proliferation and impaired T cell and B cell survival. In contrast, TC21 was overexpressed in several human lymphoid malignancies. Finally, the p110 catalytic subunit of phosphatidylinositol-3-OH kinase (PI(3)K) was recruited to the TCR and BCR in a TC21-dependent way. Consequently, we propose TC21 directly links antigen receptors to PI(3)K-mediated survival pathways.
