motifs/domains
  • three SH3 domains (signal transduction)
  • a unique SH2 domain wich recognizes a specific phosphotyrosine residue on RTKS or on substrates of RTKS like IRS1, lacking a catalytic domain
  • HOMOLOGY

    basic FUNCTION
  • transduction adaptator protein 2
  • modulates translation and eIF2alpha signaling in response to ER stress
  • . plays a pivotal role in connecting and integrating signaling networks constituted by transmembrane receptors such as ephrinB and effectors critical for cytoskeletonal dynamics and remodeling
  • NCK1, NCK2 adapters are needed for signaling to Rho GTPases and actin dynamics downstream of the PDGFbeta receptor
  • independent roles and mechanisms of action of NCK1 and NCK2 in dermal fibroblast migration, which is critical for wound healing
  • adaptor protein, involved in signaling pathways mediating proliferation, cytoskeleton organization and integrated stress response
  • effectively influences melanoma phenotype progression
  • NCK1 and NCK2 have non-redundant roles in human T cell activation

    protein
  • EGFR
  • PDGFR
  • WIPF2
  • interaction partner of the active form of NTRK2
  • connection between septins, SOCS7, NCK1/NCK2 signaling, and the DNA damage response
  • connect PDGF-BB signaling to the actin cytoskeleton and cell motility
  • interaction with SORBS1 (implications for a role in cytoskeletal remodelling during differentiation of skeletal muscle cells)
  • SKAP2 interacted with the SH2 domain of non-catalytic region of tyrosine kinase adaptor protein 2 (NCK2) via its N-terminus
  • only NCK2 is required for the SLIT1-induced changes in cortical neuron morphology
  • PAK3 down-regulates synaptic transmission through its interaction with NCK2
  • PLCE1 regulates Rho GTPase activity and cell migration through interacting with NCK2
  • cell & other
