 Abstract: PP4 phosphatase regulates a number of crucial processes but the role of PP4 in B cells has never been reported. We generated B cell-specific pp4 knockout mice and have identified an essential role for PP4 in B cell development. Deficiency of PP4 in B lineage cells leads to a strong reduction in pre-B cell numbers, an absence in immature B cells, and a complete loss of mature B cells. In PP4-deficient pro-B cells, immunoglobulin (Ig) DJH recombination is impaired and Ig µ heavy chain expression is greatly decreased. In addition, PP4-deficient pro-B cells show an increase of DNA double-strand breaks at Ig loci. Consistent with their reduced numbers, residual PP4-deficient pre-B cells accumulate in the G1 phase, exhibit excessive DNA damage, and undergo increased apoptosis. Overexpression of transgenic Ig in PP4-deficient mice rescues the defect in B cell development such that the animals have normal numbers of IgM+ B cells. Our study therefore reveals a novel function for PP4 in pro-B cell development through its promotion of VHDJH recombination.
