The Ca(2+)-activated K(+) channel KCa3.1 is required for Ca(2+) influx and the subsequent activation of T-cells. We previously showed that nucleoside diphosphate kinase beta (NDPK-B), a mammalian histidine kinase, directly phosphorylates and activates KCa3.1 and is required for the activation of human CD4 T lymphocytes. We now show that the class II phosphatidylinositol 3 kinase C2beta (PI3K-C2beta) is activated by the T-cell receptor (TCR) and functions upstream of NDPK-B to activate KCa3.1 ...Expand abstract
