c-Cbl is inducibly tyrosine-phosphorylated by epidermal growth factor stimulation in fibroblasts, and constitutively tyrosine-phosphorylated and associated with v-Src in v-src-transformed fibroblasts.

The c-cbl gene was cloned as the cellular homolog of the v-cbl oncogene that is the transforming component of a murine tumorigenic retrovirus, CAS NS-1, though the biological roles of c-Cbl remain to be elucidated. We have previously reported that c-Cbl is implicated in the signal transduction triggered by granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor or erythropoietin in hematopoietic cells. Here, we observed tyrosine phosphorylation of C-cbl in cells expressing epidermal growth factor receptor depending on EGF stimulation and in v-src transformed cells. Furthermore, c-Cbl was revealed to associate with v-Src in vivo. By means of binding experiments using glutathione S-transferase fusion proteins, we have found that the SH2 and SH3 domains of many proteins bind to c-Cbl. These findings strongly suggest that c-Cbl is implicated in a wide variety of signal transduction pathways, including those of EGF receptor and Src protein, as well as in the signaling pathways of hematopoietic cells.
