It has previously been reported that in resting T-lymphocytes the protein tyrosine kinase p59 constitutively co-precipitates with four phosphoproteins of 43, 55, 85, and 120 kDa, respectively. We have recently cloned the 55-kDa protein that was termed Src kinase-associated phosphoprotein of 55 kDa (SKAP55). Here we demonstrate that the recently characterized SH2-domain-containing leukocyte protein 76-associated phosphoprotein of 130 kDa (SLAP-130) is one of the components of the Fyn complex and that it also co-precipitates with SKAP55 in human T-cells. We establish that SKAP55 and SLAP-130 associate with each other when both molecules are co-expressed in COS cells. By co-transfection of truncated mutants of SKAP55 and SLAP-130 as well as by using the two-hybrid selection system, we further demonstrate that the association between SLAP-130 and SKAP55 is direct and involves the Src homology 3 domain of SKAP55 and the proline-rich sequence of SLAP-130.
SciCrunch is a data sharing and display platform. Anyone can create a custom portal where they can select searchable subsets of hundreds of data sources, brand their web pages and create their community. SciCrunch will push data updates automatically to all portals on a weekly basis. User communities can also add their own data to SciCrunch, however this is not currently a free service.
