LAT Gene Sequence, Family, Fuction and Expression Information

LAT cDNA / Gene Overview

LAT cDNA / gene is a gene with protein product which located on 16q13. The LAT gene is conserved in chimpanzee, Rhesus monkey, dog, cow, mouse, and rat. 123 organisms have orthologs with human gene LAT.

LAT cDNA / Gene Function

The protein encoded by this gene is phosphorylated by ZAP-70/Syk protein tyrosine kinases following activation of the T-cell antigen receptor (TCR) signal transduction pathway. This transmembrane protein localizes to lipid rafts and acts as a docking site for SH2 domain-containing proteins. Upon phosphorylation, this protein recruits multiple adaptor proteins and downstream signaling molecules into multimolecular signaling complexes located near the site of TCR engagement. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
