The Autophagy Receptor TAX1BP1 ( T6BP ) improves antigen presentation by MHC‐II molecules

Bénédicte Manoury

Abstract

CD4 + T lymphocytes play a major role in the establishment and maintenance of immunity. They are activated by antigenic peptides derived from extracellular or newly synthesized (endogenous) proteins presented by the MHC-II molecules. The pathways leading to endogenous MHC-II presentation remain poorly characterized. We demonstrate here that the autophagy receptor, T6BP, influences both autophagy-dependent and-independent endogenous presentation of HIV-and HCMV-derived peptides. By studying the immunopeptidome of MHC-II molecules, we show that T6BP affects both the quantity and quality of peptides presented. T6BP silencing induces the mislocalization of the MHC-II-loading compartments and rapid degradation of the invariant chain (CD74) without altering the expression and internalization kinetics of MHC-II molecules. Defining the interactome of T6BP, we identify calnexin as a T6BP partner. We show that the calnexin cytosolic tail is required for this interaction. Remarkably, calnexin silencing replicates the functional consequences of T6BP silencing: decreased CD4 + T cell activation and exacerbated CD74 degradation. Altogether, we unravel T6BP as a key player of the MHC-II-restricted endogenous presentation pathway, and we propose one potential mechanism of action.
