CSF-1 stimulation induces the formation of a multiprotein complex including CSF-1 receptor, c-Cbl, PI 3-kinase, Crk-II and Grb2

Abstract

Recently c-Cbl has been reported to be phosphorylated upon CSF-1 stimulation. The product of the c-cbl proto-oncogene (c-Cbl) is a 120 kDa protein harboring several docking sites for Src homology 2 (SH2) domain containing proteins and proline-rich regions that have been shown to allow its constitutive association with the SH3 domains of Grb2. We demonstrate here that CSF-1 exposure of stable transfectant CHO cells expressing the CSF-1 receptor induced the sustained tyrosine phosphorylation of c-Cbl and its subsequent association with Crk-II and the p85 kDa subunit of the PI 3-kinase, while it constitutively associates with Grb2. We demonstrate by in vitro experiments that these associations require the SH2 domain of Crk-II and both the C- and N-terminal SH2 domains of the p85 subunit of the PI 3-kinase. c-Cbl is the major PI 3-kinase-containing protein in c-Fms expressing CHO cells upon CSF-1 stimulation. Thus c-Cbl behaves as a core protein, allowing the formation of a quaternary complex including, Crk-II, PI 3-kinase and Grb2. We provide evidence that this multiprotein complex can interact with the tyrosine phosphorylated CSF-1 receptor through the unoccupied SH2 domain of Grb2.
