Switch #:
Switch type:
Switch subtype:

Alternative splicing removes the SH2-binding motif of Disabled homolog 1 (Dab1), abrogating binding to Cytoplasmic protein NCK2 (NCK2). The NCK2-beta has a clear preference for splice variant 2 (with YQYI motif) over splice variant 3 (with YQTI motif). The authors theorise that since Adapter molecule crk (Crk) is directly linked to the C3G-Rap1 pathway, and NCK2-beta is linked to the Breast cancer anti-estrogen resistance protein 1 (Bcar1) (p130Cas) pathway, it is likely that isoforms 2 and 3 connect to different downstream cascades. It was suggested that the ability of different Dab1 isoforms to recruit distinct sets of SH2 domains implies a fine-tuning role of Dab1 splicing in the intricate series of events that underlie neuronal migration (Gao et al. (2012) (here)) (See also Katyal and Godbout (2004) (here) and Gao et al. (2010) (here)).
