Entrez Gene Summary for CLNK Gene

  • MIST is a member of the SLP76 family of adaptors (see LCP2, MIM 601603; BLNK, MIM 604515). MIST plays a role in the regulation of immunoreceptor signaling, including PLC-gamma (PLCG1; MIM 172420)-mediated B cell antigen receptor (BCR) signaling and FC-epsilon R1 (see FCER1A, MIM 147140)-mediated mast cell degranulation (Cao et al., 1999 [PubMed 10562326]; Goitsuka et al., 2000, 2001 [PubMed 10744659] [PubMed 11463797]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

GeneCards Summary for CLNK Gene

Post-translational modifications for CLNK Gene

  • Tyrosine-phosphorylated upon BCR cross-linking. Tyrosine phosphorylation at both Tyr-69 and Tyr-96 are required for BCR-induced calcium response and are essential to restore PLCG2-mediated signaling in BLNK-deficient DT40 cells, but this phosphorylation is dispensable in cells expressing LAT. Interacts with the SH2 domain of PLCG1 via phosphorylated Tyr-96 (By similarity).
