In T lymphocyte, activation of Kv1.3 channel, the major voltage-dependent K(+) channel, is an essential step for cell proliferation in immune responses. Here, effects of anti-CD3 and anti-CD28 antibodies on Kv1.3 current were examined in three types of human T lymphocyte derived cell lines, Jurkat E6-1, p56lck-kinase deficient mutant JCaM.1, and CD45-phosphatase deficient mutant J45.01. Kv1.3 current was partly reduced by CD3 stimulation and more strongly by addition of anti-CD28 antibody in E6-1. In JCaM.1, Kv1.3 current responses to anti-CD28/CD3 antibodies were similar to those in E6-1. In J45.01, CD3 stimulation partly inhibited Kv1.3 current, but the additive reduction by CD28 stimulation was not significant. The inhibition of tyrosine phosphatase in E6-1 abolished the additional inhibition by anti-CD28 antibody in a similar manner as in J45.01. In conclusion, the stimulation of CD28 in addition to CD3 strongly inhibits Kv1.3 current and this additive inhibition is mediated by CD45 activation.
