HMDB Protein ID HMDBP13428
Secondary Accession Numbers None
Name Growth factor receptor-bound protein 2
  1. Adapter protein GRB2
  2. SH2/SH3 adapter GRB2
Gene Name GRB2
Protein Type Unknown
Biological Properties
General Function Not Available
Specific Function Adapter protein that provides a critical link between cell surface growth factor receptors and the Ras signaling pathway.Does not bind to phosphorylated epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) but inhibits EGF-induced transactivation of a RAS-responsive element. Acts as a dominant negative protein over GRB2 and by suppressing proliferative signals, may trigger active programmed cell death.
