This entry represent the third SH3 domain of Nck1. The third SH3 domain of Nck appears to prefer ligands with a PxAPxR motif [PMID: 16752908].
Nck1 (also called Nck-alpha) plays a crucial role in connecting signaling pathways of tyrosine kinase receptors and important effectors in actin dynamics and cytoskeletal remodeling [PMID: 20971703]. It binds and activates RasGAP, resulting in the downregulation of Ras [PMID: 21664272]. It is also involved in the signaling of endothilin-mediated inhibition of cell migration [PMID: 15187089].
Cytoplasmic proteins Nck are non-enzymatic adaptor proteins composed of three SH3 (Src homology 3) domains and a C-terminal SH2 domain [PMID: 21600986]. They regulate actin cytoskeleton dynamics by linking proline-rich effector molecules to protein tyrosine kinases and phosphorylated signaling intermediates [PMID: 12034353]. They function downstream of the PDGFbeta receptor and are involved in Rho GTPase signaling and actin dynamics [PMID: 18765673]. They associate with tyrosine-phosphorylated growth factor receptors or their cellular substrates [PMID: 9344857,PMID: 11240126]. There are two vertebrate Nck proteins, Nck1 and Nck2.
