Abstract

The objective of the study was to explore the phenotype and intracellular signaling events of B cells in patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc). Peripheral blood B cell surface markers CD19 and CD22 were evaluated by flow cytometry in 23 patients with SSc and seven healthy individuals. Levels of intracellular kinases Lyn, Syk and P-Y 348 Syk along with phosphatase SHP-1 were examined with Western immunoblotting in selected patients. P-Y 822 CD22 was subsequently evaluated flow cytometrically in antigen receptor stimulated B cells. A statistically significant decrease in CD22 B cell surface expression was found in the diffuse subset of patients (median CD22 MFI ± SD was 5.90 ± 2.35 vs 10.20 ± 1.88 for patients vs healthy controls respectively; p = 0.021), while no statistically significant change was found regarding CD19. CD22 underexpres- sion was more pronounced when interstitial lung disease (ILD) was present (median CD22 MFI ± SD was 5.90 ± 2.25 vs 10.20 ± 1.88 for patients with ILD vs healthy controls respectively; p = 0.011). CD22 phosphorylation following B cell receptor (BCR) stimulation was also found to be impaired in patients with diffuse SSc (median change in MFI ± SD was 0.28 ± 0.09 vs 0.38 ±
