We demonstrate here that growth hormone (GH) stimulates the activation of Rap1 and Rap2 in NIH-3T3 cells. Full activation of Rap1 and Rap2 by GH necessitated the combined activity of both JAK2 and c-Src kinases, although c-Src was predominantly required. GH-stimulated Rap1 and Rap2 activity was also demonstrated to be CrkII-C3G-dependent. GH stimulated the tyrosine phosphorylation of C3G, which again required the combined activity of JAK2 and c-Src. C3G tyrosine residue 504 was required for GH-stimulated Rap …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
