a T cell surface glycoprotein that is a component of the T cell antigen receptor. The recruitment of Nck by CD3 epsilon reveals a ligand-induced conformational change essential for T cell receptor signaling and synapse formation. Contains 1 immunoglobulin-like domain and 1 ITAM domain. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
