BLNK (B-cell Linker Protein, B-cell Adapter Containing a SH2 Domain Protein, B-cell Adapter Containing a Src Homology 2 Domain Protein, Cytoplasmic Adapter Protein, Src Homology 2 Domain-containing Leukocyte Protein of 65kD, SLP-65, BASH, SLP65)
Description:
BLNK is a cytoplasmic linker or adaptor protein that plays a critical role in B cell development. This protein bridges B cell receptor-associated kinase activation with downstream signaling pathways, thereby affecting various biological functions. The phosphorylation of five tyrosine residues is necessary for this protein to nucleate distinct signaling effectors following B cell receptor activation. Mutations in its gene cause hypoglobulinemia and absent B cells, a disease in which the pro- to pre-B-cell transition is developmentally blocked. Deficiency in this protein has also been shown in some cases of pre-B acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
