Inhibition of Rag GTPase signaling in mice suppresses B cell responses and lymphomagenesis with minimal detrimental trade-offs.

Cell Rep 2021 Jul;36(2):109372

Metabolism and Cell Signaling Laboratory, Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO), Melchor Fernandez Almagro 3, Madrid 28029, Spain. Electronic address:

B lymphocytes are exquisitely sensitive to fluctuations in nutrient signaling by the Rag GTPases, and 15% of follicular lymphomas (FLs) harbor activating mutations in RRAGC. Hence, a potential therapeutic approach against malignant B cells is to inhibit Rag GTPase signaling, but because such inhibitors are still to be developed, efficacy and safety remain unknown. We generated knockin mice expressing a hypomorphic variant of RagC (Q119L); RagC mice are viable and show attenuated nutrient signaling. Read More
