CIN85 is an 85-kDa adaptor protein whose functions in signaling pathways are presently unknown. Using the yeast two-hybrid screen, the B cell linker protein (BLNK) was identified as a binding partner of CIN85. Coimmunoprecipitation experiments using mammalian cells revealed that CIN85 directly bound to BLNK through its SH3 domains. Immunostaining analysis showed that CIN85 and BLNK were colocalized in the cytoplasm. These results indicate a potential role of CIN85 in the B cell receptor-mediated signaling pathway. It was also found that Crk-I, Crk-II, p130(Cas), p85-PI3K, Grb2, and Sos1 were components of CIN85 complexes. CIN85 interacted with itself through its coiled-coil region, resulting in formation of a tetramer. Both the coiled-coil region and SH3 domains of CIN85 were responsible for its subcellular localization. Our data suggest that CIN85 may serve for regulation of various signaling events through formation of its diverse complexes.
