Previous GeneCards Identifiers for STAM Gene
This gene encodes a member of the signal-transducing adaptor molecule family. These proteins mediate downstream signaling of cytokine receptors and also play a role in ER to Golgi trafficking by interacting with the coat protein II complex. The encoded protein also associates with hepatocyte growth factor-regulated substrate to form the endosomal sorting complex required for transport-0 (ESCRT-0), which sorts ubiquitinated membrane proteins to the ESCRT-1 complex for lysosomal degradation. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2011]
GeneCards Summary for STAM Gene
STAM (Signal Transducing Adaptor Molecule) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with STAM include Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease, Demyelinating, Type 1C and Polycystic Kidney Disease 2 With Or Without Polycystic Liver Disease. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Budding and maturation of HIV virion. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include SH3/SH2 adaptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is STAM2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for STAM Gene
Involved in intracellular signal transduction mediated by cytokines and growth factors. Upon IL-2 and GM-CSL stimulation, it plays a role in signaling leading to DNA synthesis and MYC induction. May also play a role in T-cell development. Involved in down-regulation of receptor tyrosine kinase via multivesicular body (MVBs) when complexed with HGS (ESCRT-0 complex). The ESCRT-0 complex binds ubiquitin and acts as sorting machinery that recognizes ubiquitinated receptors and transfers them to further sequential lysosomal sorting/trafficking processes.
