Leukotriene (LT) B(4) is generated in response to engagement of the Fc gamma receptor (Fc gamma R) and potently contributes to Fc gamma R-mediated antimicrobial functions in pulmonary alveolar macrophages. In this study, we report that the LTB(4) receptor leukotriene B(4) receptor 1 (BLT1) redistributes from nonlipid raft (LR) to LR membrane microdomains upon immunoglobulin G-red blood cell, but not LTB(4), challenge. Cholesterol depletion to disrupt LRs abolished LTB(4)-induced enhancement of phagocytosis, microbicidal activity, and signaling. The dependence on LR integrity for BLT1 signaling correlated with formation of a complex consisting of BLT1, its primary coupled G protein G alpha i3, Src kinase, and Fc gamma RI within LRs. This association was dependent on Src-mediated phosphorylation of BLT1. These data identify a novel form of regulation in which engagement of a macrophage immunoreceptor recruits a stimulatory G protein-coupled receptor into a LR microdomain with resultant enhanced antimicrobial signaling.
