a widely expressed docking protein which plays a central coordinating role for tyrosine-kinase-based signaling in cell adhesion. May function in transmitting growth control signals between focal adhesions at the cell periphery and the mitotic spindle in response to adhesion or growth factor signals initiating cell proliferation. Integrin beta-1 stimulation leads to recruitment of various proteins including CRK, NCK and SHPTP2 to the tyrosine phosphorylated form. Phosphorylated following integrin beta-1, antigen receptor, or C1a calcitonin receptor signaling. Transformation of fibroblasts with v-ABL results in an increase in its tyrosine phosphorylation. Phosphorylated by focal adhesion kinase. Highly expressed in kidney, lung, and placenta. Also detected in T-cells, B-cells and diverse cell lines.
