Gab1 is a 115 kDa multiple docking protein that plays an essential role in cellular growth, transformation and apoptosis. Gab1 can be phosphorylated by multiple receptor tyrosine kinase (RTKs), including: insulin receptor (IR), platelet-derived growth factor receptor beta] (PDGFRbeta]), hepatocyte growth factor/scatter factor receptor (HGFR/SFR or c-Met), and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGF), as well as in response to cell-cell adhesion. Gab1 is tyrosine phosphorylated on at least 16 sites, some of which serve as binding sites for phosphoatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K), Grb2, PLC gamma 1, Nck, and SHP2. Phosphorylation of Gab1 on tyrosines 627 and 659 is critical for its binding to SHP2, and for activation of the ERK/MAPK pathway in response to EGF.
