description:
Birt-Hogg-Dube (BHD) syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by hamartomas of skin follicles, cystic lung disease, and renal neoplasia. Affected individuals carry heterozygous mutations in Folliculin (FLCN), a tumor suppressor gene that becomes biallelically inactivated in kidney tumors by second-hit mutations. Similar to other factors implicated in kidney malignancies, Folliculin has been shown to modulate activation of mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR). However, its precise in vivo function is largely unknown because germline deletion of Flcn results in early embryonic lethality in animal models. We here describe mice deficient in the newly characterized Folliculin-Interacting Protein 1 (Fnip1). In contrast to Flcn, Fnip1-/- mice develop normally, are not susceptible to kidney neoplasia, but display a striking pro-B cell block that is independent of mTOR activity. We show that this developmental arrest results at least in part from impaired V(D)J recombination and caspase-induced cell death, and that pre-recombined V(D)J and Bcl2 transgenes reconstitute pre-B and mature B cell populations respectively. We also demonstrate that conditional deletion of Flcn recapitulates the pro-B cell arrest of Fnip1-/- mice. Our studies thus demonstrate that the Flcn-Fnip complex deregulated in BHD syndrome is absolutely required for B cell differentiation and that it functions both through mTOR dependent and independent pathways.
