Previous GeneCards Identifiers 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
CLNK (Cytokine Dependent Hematopoietic Cell Linker) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CLNK include Tuberculous Empyema and Trichotillomania. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include SH3/SH2 adaptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is LCP2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for CLNK Gene
An adapter protein which plays a role in the regulation of immunoreceptor signaling, including PLC-gamma-mediated B-cell antigen receptor (BCR) signaling and FC-epsilon R1-mediated mast cell degranulation (By similarity). Together with FGR, it acts as a negative regulator of natural killer cell-activating receptors and inhibits interferon-gamma production (By similarity). Acts as a positive regulator of both T-cell receptor and natural killer T (NKT) cell receptor signaling in CD4-positive NKT cells (By similarity). Together with MAP4K1, it enhances CD3-triggered activation of T-cells and subsequent IL2 production (By similarity). May be involved in tumor necrosis factor induced cell death by promoting reactive oxidative species generation, and MLKL oligomerization, ultimately leading to necrosis (By similarity). Involved in phosphorylation of LAT (By similarity). May be involved in high affinity immunoglobulin epsilon receptor signaling in mast cells (By similarity).
