The Cbl interactome and its functions

Nat Rev Mol Cell Biol. 2005 Dec;6(12):907-18. doi: 10.1038/nrm1762.


Cbl proteins are ubiquitin ligases and multifunctional adaptor proteins that are implicated in the regulation of signal transduction in various cell types and in response to different stimuli. Cbl-associated proteins can assemble together at a given time or space inside the cell, and such an interactome can form signal competent networks that control many physiological processes. Dysregulation of spatial or temporal constraints in the Cbl interactome results in the development of human pathologies such as immune diseases, diabetes and cancer.
