Spi-C is an Ets family transcription factor closely related to PU.1 and Spi-B. Expression of Spi-C is developmentally regulated in the B-cell lineage, but its function remains unknown. To determine the function of Spi-C in B-cell development, we generated mice expressing a B-cell-specific Spi-C transgene under the control of the IgH intronic enhancer. Spi-C transgenic mice had 50% fewer B cells than wild-type littermates. Flow cytometric analyses showed that splenic transitional B cells and bone marrow pre-B or immature B cells from transgenic mice were dramatically reduced compared with those of wild type...

OBJECTIVE: It has been demonstrated that high concentration of the transcription factor PU.1 (encoded by Sfpi1) promotes macrophage development, whereas low concentration induces B-cell development in vitro. This has led to the hypothesis that lower levels of PU.1 activity are required for B cell than for macrophage development in vivo. We utilized an allele of Sfpi1 (termed BN) with a mutation in the first coding exon, which resulted in a reduction of PU.1 expression in order to test this hypothesis...

Signaling through the IL-7 receptor (IL-7R) is required for development and maintenance of the immune system. The receptor for IL-7 is heterodimeric, consisting of a common gamma chain (gammac, encoded by Il2rg) and an alpha subunit (IL-7Ralpha, encoded by Il7r). The Il7r gene is expressed specifically in the immune system in a developmental stage-specific manner. It is not known how the Il7r gene is transcriptionally regulated during B cell development. The goal of this study is to elucidate the function of the Il7r promoter region in developing B cells...

The Ets transcription factor Spi-C, expressed in B cells and macrophages, is closely related to PU.1 and has the ability to recognize the same DNA consensus sequence. However, the function of Spi-C has yet to be determined. The purpose of this study is to further examine Spi-C activity in B cell development. First, using retroviral vectors to infect PU.1(-/-) fetal liver progenitors, Spi-C was found to be inefficient at inducing cytokine-dependent proliferation and differentiation of progenitor B (pro-B) cells or macrophages relative to PU...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
Brock L Schweitzer, Rodney P DeKoter
A number of presumptive target genes for the Ets-family transcription factor PU.1 have been identified in the B cell lineage. However, the precise function of PU.1 in B cells has not been studied because targeted null mutation of the PU.1 gene results in a block to lymphomyeloid development at an early developmental stage. In this study, we take advantage of recently developed PU.1(-/-)Spi-B(-/-) IL-7 and stromal cell-dependent progenitor B (pro-B) cell lines to analyze the function of PU.1 and Spi-B in B cell development...
