Erythropoietin induces the tyrosine phosphorylation of GAB1 and its association with SHC, SHP2, SHIP, and phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase.

Five tyrosine-phosphorylated proteins with molecular masses of 180, 145, 116, 100, and 70 kD are associated with phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase ( PI 3-kinase) in erythropoietin (Epo)-stimulated UT-7 cells. The 180- and 70-kD proteins have been previously shown to be IRS2 and the Epo receptor. In this report, we show that the 116-kD protein is the IRS2-related molecular adapter, GAB1. Indeed, Epo induced the transient tyrosine phosphorylation of GAB1 in UT-7 cells. Both kinetics and Epo dose-response experiments showed that GAB1 tyrosine phosphorylation was a direct consequence of Epo receptor activation. After tyrosine phosphorylation, GAB1 associated with the PI 3-kinase, the phosphotyrosine phosphatase SHP2, the phosphatidylinositol 3,4,5 trisphosphate 5-phosphatase SHIP, and the molecular adapter SHC. GAB1 was also associated with the molecular adapter GRB2 in unstimulated cells, and this association dramatically increased after Epo stimulation. Thus, GAB1 could be a scaffold protein able to couple the Epo receptor activation with the stimulation of several intracellular signaling pathways. Epo- induced tyrosine phosphorylation of GAB1 was also observed in normal human erythroid progenitors isolated from cord blood. Granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) and thrombopoietin (TPO) also induced the tyrosine phosphorylation of GAB1 in UT-7 cells, indicating that this molecule participates in the signal transduction of several cytokine receptors.[1]
