Previous HGNC Symbols for FYB1 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is an adapter for the FYN protein and LCP2 signaling cascades in T-cells. The encoded protein is involved in platelet activation and controls the expression of interleukin-2. Three transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

GeneCards Summary for FYB1 Gene
FYB1 (FYN Binding Protein 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FYB1 include Thrombocytopenia 3 and Congenital Autosomal Recessive Small-Platelet Thrombocytopenia. Among its related pathways are Cell junction organization and Yersinia infection. An important paralog of this gene is FYB2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for FYB1 Gene
Acts as an adapter protein of the FYN and LCP2 signaling cascades in T-cells (By similarity). May play a role in linking T-cell signaling to remodeling of the actin cytoskeleton (PubMed:10747096, PubMed:16980616). Modulates the expression of IL2 (By similarity). Involved in platelet activation (By similarity). Prevents the degradation of SKAP1 and SKAP2 (PubMed:15849195). May be involved in high affinity immunoglobulin epsilon receptor signaling in mast cells (By similarity).
