Summaries for SLA2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SLA2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the SLAP family of adapter proteins. The encoded protein may play an important receptor-proximal role in downregulating T and B cell-mediated responses and inhibits antigen receptor-induced calcium mobilization. This protein interacts with Cas-Br-M (murine) ecotropic retroviral transforming sequence c. Two transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been identified for this gene.

GeneCards Summary for SLA2 Gene

SLA2 (Src-Like-Adaptor 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLA2 include blastomycosis. Among its related pathways are B Cell Receptor Signaling Pathway (WikiPathways) and Gene Expression. GO annotations related to this gene include protein N-terminus binding and SH3/SH2 adaptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLA.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SLA2 Gene

  • Adapter protein, which negatively regulates T-cell receptor (TCR) signaling. Inhibits T-cell antigen-receptor induced activation of nuclear factor of activated T-cells. May act by linking signaling proteins such as ZAP70 with CBL, leading to a CBL dependent degradation of signaling proteins.
