Membrane sequestration of tyrosine-based signaling motifs of antigen receptors effectively restricts the signaling activities in resting lymphocytes. However, low level of basal signaling in resting cells is required for lymphocyte survival and antigen responsiveness, of which the molecular mechanism remains obscure. Here we probe the transient release of the cytoplasmic domain of the membrane-bound IgG heavy chain (mIgG-tail) by hydrogen exchange NMR spectroscopy, illustrating a dynamic molecular basis for its basal signaling activity. To solve the severe resonance overlap problem in the 2D spectra of mIgG-tail, a non-uniformly sampled pseudo-4D hydrogen exchange NMR experiment has been exploited to quantitatively measure site-specific hydrogen exchange rates. Our solution NMR study reveals transient solvent exposure of the ITT signaling motif that can be further enhanced by calcium ion, and provides insight into the mechanism of lymphocyte basal signaling.
