In studies aimed at further characterizing the cellular immunodeficiency of the Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome (WAS), we found that T lymphocytes from WAS patients display abnormal chemotaxis in response to the T-cell chemoattractant stromal cell-derived factor (SDF)-1. The Wiskott- Aldrich syndrome protein (WASP), together with the Rho family GTPase Cdc42,(More)
IL-2 stimulation of T lymphocytes induces the tyrosine phosphorylation and adaptor function of the insulin receptor substrate/Grb2-associated binder (Gab) family member, Gab2. In addition, Gab2 undergoes a marked decrease in its mobility in SDS-PAGE, characteristic of migration shifts induced by serine/threonine phosphorylations in many proteins. This(More)
p97/Gab2 is a recently characterized member of a large family of scaffold proteins that play essential roles in signal transduction. Gab2 becomes tyrosine-phosphorylated in response to a variety of growth factors and forms multimolecular complexes with SH2 domain-containing signaling molecules such as the p85-regulatory subunit of the(More)
MgcRacGAP, a Rho GAP essential to cytokinesis, works both as a Rho GTPase regulator and as a scaffolding protein. MgcRacGAP interacts with MKLP1 to form the centralspindlin complex and associates with the RhoGEF Ect2. The GAP activity of MgcRacGAP is regulated by Aurora B phosphorylation. We have isolated B56epsilon, a PP2A regulatory subunit, as a new(More)
Gab2 (Grb2-associated binder-2), a member of the IRS (insulin receptor substrate)/Gab family of adapter proteins, undergoes tyrosine phosphorylation in response to cytokine or growth factor stimulation and serves as a docking platform for many signal transduction effectors, including the tyrosine phosphatase SHP-2 [SH2 (Src homology 2)-domain-containing(More)
BACKGROUND Besides regulation of actin cytoskeleton-dependent functions, Rho GTPase pathways are essential to cell cycle progression and cell division. Rho, Rac and Cdc42 regulate G1 to S phase progression and are involved in cytokinesis. RhoA GDP/GTP cycling is required for normal cytokinesis and recent reports have shown that the exchange factor Ect2 and(More)
SAP is a small cytosolic adaptor protein expressed in hematopoietic lineages whose main function is to regulate intracellular signaling pathways induced by the triggering of members of the SLAM receptor family. In this paper, we have identified the adhesion molecule PECAM-1 as a new partner for SAP in a conditional yeast two-hybrid screen. PECAM-1 is an(More)
