Engagement of beta1 integrins in terminally differentiated human B cell lines, such as ARH-77, leads to prominent tyrosine phosphorylation of the p130 Crk-associated substrate (Cas). Cas regulates the assembly of several SH2 and SH3 domain-containing proteins into signaling complexes, which are potentially involved in the propagation of downstream signals. We demonstrate here that immunoprecipitated Cas from beta1 integrin-stimulated ARH-77 cells was associated with tyrosine kinase and phosphatase activities and that integrin ligation led to the recruitment of at least p59(Fyn) tyrosine kinase and SHP2 tyrosine phosphatase in Cas immune complexes. Cotransfection studies in COS-7 cells further indicated that Fyn/Cas physical interaction and Fyn-mediated Cas phosphorylation required amino acids 638-889 in the C-terminal region of Cas. This sequence contains both c-Src SH2 and SH3 domain-binding motifs. In vitro binding studies using glutathione S-transferase fusion proteins derived from the SH2 or SH3 domains of Fyn suggested that both Fyn domains can participate in Fyn/Cas interaction. These data implicate Fyn and SHP2 as potential modulators of Cas signaling complexes in B cells.
