The activation of protein tyrosine kinases is a critical event in T cell antigen receptor (TCR)-mediated signaling. One substrate of the TCR-activated protein tyrosine kinase pathway is a 76-kD protein (SLP-76) that associates with the adaptor protein Grb2. Northern analysis demonstrates that SLP76 mRNA is expressed solely in peripheral blood leukocytes, thymus, and spleen; and in human T cell, B cell and monocytic cell lines. In vitro translation of SLP76 cDNA gives rise to a single product of 76kD that associates with a GST/Grb2 fusion protein, demonstrating a direct association between these two molecules. It has been reported that this novel protein is likely to play an important role in TCR-mediated intracellular signal transduction (1). It has been shown that SDF-1alpha stimulation of prolonged ERK activation in Jurkat T cells requires both the ZAP-70 tyrosine kinase and the Src homology 2 domain-containing leukocyte protein of SLP-76 scaffold protein. This pathway involves ZAP-70-dependent tyrosine phosphorylation of SLP-76 at one or more of its tyrosines, 113, 128, and 145 (2).
