Abstract: The growth factor receptor-binding protein (Grb2) has a key role in initiating the mitogen-activated protein kinase signaling cascade in major cell regulatory pathways. The binding of proteins to the SH2 domain of Grb2 has been reported to occur mainly after they are tyrosine-phosphorylated following receptor activation. Using an in vitro binding assay, immunoprecipitation, and Far Western techniques, we report that in quiescent cells a 75-kDa protein binds directly to the SH2 domain of Grb2. All of the tyrosine-phosphorylated p75 protein co-localizes with Grb2·Sos complex in the cytosolic fraction of the cell in vivo and undergoes tyrosine dephosphorylation when cells are treated with mitogenic ligands such as epidermal, platelet-derived, and fibroblast growth factors, endothelin-1, and bombesin but not tumor necrosis factor-α, interferon-α and -γ interleukein-6, and leukemic inhibitory factor, which are either cell growth inhibitory or not significantly mitogenic. The dephosphorylation of p75 and the ensuing dissociation from Grb2 is rapid, occurring within 30 s following mitogenic stimulation by ligands such as epidermal growth factor, suggesting p75 to be an early component in the signal transduction pathways involving Grb2.
