Proliferation is tightly regulated during T cell development, and is limited to immature CD4CD8 thymocytes. The major proliferative event is initiated at the 'β-selection' stage following successful rearrangement of Tcrβ, and is triggered by and dependent on concurrent signaling by Notch and the pre-T cell receptor (TCR); however, it is unclear how these signals cooperate to promote cell proliferation. Here, we found that β-selection-associated proliferation required the combined activity of two Skp-cullin-F-box (SCF) ubiquitin ligase complexes that included as substrate recognition subunits the F-box proteins Fbxl1 or Fbxl12. Both SCF complexes targeted the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor Cdkn1b for polyubiquitination and proteasomal degradation. We found that Notch signals induced the transcription of Fbxl1, whereas pre-TCR signals induced the transcription of Fbxl12. Thus, concurrent Notch and pre-TCR signaling induced the expression of two genes, Fbxl1 and Fbxl12, whose products functioned identically but additively to promote degradation of Cdkn1b, cell cycle progression, and proliferation of β-selected thymocytes.
