The protein encoded by this gene is expressed in B lymphocytes and contains pleckstrin homology and src homology 2 (SH2) domains. In Burkitt's lymphoma cell lines, it is tyrosine-phosphorylated in response to B cell receptor stimulation. Because it binds Shc independent of stimulation and Grb2 after stimulation, it appears to play a role in signal transduction from the receptor to the Shc/Grb2 pathway. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2009]
GeneCards Summary for SH2B2 Gene
SH2B2 (SH2B Adaptor Protein 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Tyrosine Kinases / Adaptors and Factors involved in megakaryocyte development and platelet production. GO annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding and SH3/SH2 adaptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is SH2B1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SH2B2 Gene
Adapter protein for several members of the tyrosine kinase receptor family. Involved in multiple signaling pathways. May be involved in coupling from immunoreceptor to Ras signaling. Acts as a negative regulator of cytokine signaling in collaboration with CBL. Binds to EPOR and suppresses EPO-induced STAT5 activation, possibly through a masking effect on STAT5 docking sites in EPOR. Suppresses PDGF-induced mitogenesis. May induce cytoskeletal reorganization via interaction with VAV3.
