WD repeat and FYVE domain containing 3

BWF1, Alfy
This gene encodes a phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate-binding protein that functions as a master conductor for aggregate clearance by autophagy. This protein shuttles from the nuclear membrane to colocalize with aggregated proteins, where it complexes with other autophagic components to achieve macroautophagy-mediated clearance of these aggregated proteins. However, it is not necessary for starvation-induced macroautophagy. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010] (from NCBI)

Roth et al., Seoul, South Korea. In Histochem Cell Biol, 2014
It colocalizes with the selective autophagy cargo receptors p62/SQSTM1, neighbor of BRCA1 gene 1 (NBR1) and autophagy-linked FYVE (Alfy) protein, and becomes engulfed by autophagic isolation membranes.
Dendritic and stromal cells from the spleen of lupic mice present phenotypic and functional abnormalities.

Blimp-1 siRNA inhibits B cell differentiation and prevents the development of lupus in mice.
Hu et al., Jinan, China. In Hum Immunol, 2013
To explore the potential of Blimp-1 in the SLE development, we constructed the adenovirus encoding Blimp-1 siRNA, and injected it into BWF1 lupus mice.
Malarial infection of female BWF1 lupus mice alters the redox state in kidney and liver tissues and confers protection against lupus nephritis.

We have measured changes in the levels of nitric oxide (NO), hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), malondialdehyde (MDA), and reduced glutathione (GSH) in both kidney and liver tissues of female BWF1 lupus mice, an experimental model of SLE, after infection with either live or gamma-irradiated malaria.
Germline deletion of β2 microglobulin or CD1d reduces anti-phospholipid antibody, but increases autoantibodies against non-phospholipid antigens in the NZB/W F1 model of lupus.

METHODS: We introgressed the β2m-null genotype onto the NZB and NZW backgrounds for 12 to 14 generations to generate genetically lupus-susceptible (NZB/NZW)F1 (BWF1) mice that are β2m-deficient (β2m°).
