Abstract: JAM-A belongs to a family of immunoglobulin-like proteins called junctional adhesion molecules (JAMs) that localize at epithelial and endothelial intercellular tight junctions. JAM-A is also expressed on dendritic cells, neutrophils, and platelets. Homophilic JAM-A interactions play an important role in regulating paracellular permeability and leukocyte transmigration across epithelial monolayers and endothelial cell junctions, respectively. In addition, JAM-A is a receptor for the reovirus attachment protein, σ1. In this study, we used single molecular force spectroscopy to compare the kinetics of JAM-A interactions with itself and σ1. A chimeric murine JAM-A/Fc fusion protein and the purified σ1 head domain were used to probe murine L929 cells, which express JAM-A and are susceptible to reovirus infection. The bond half-life (t1/2) of homophilic JAM-A interactions was found to be shorter (koff o = 0.688 ± 0.349 s-1) than that of σ1/JAM-A interactions (koff o = 0.067 ± 0.041 s-1). These results are in accordance with the physiological functions of JAM-A and σ1. A short bond lifetime imparts a highly dynamic nature to homophilic JAM-A interactions for regulating tight junction permeability while stable interactions between σ1 and JAM-A likely anchor the virus to the cell surface and facilitate viral entry.
