Among candidate proteins that function to recruit Grb2 and activate Ras in cells expressing BCR/ABL are the Shc adaptor protein and the SHP-2 protein tyrosine phosphatase. 62,86,89 Regardless, tyrosine-phosphorylated Shc may provide for an alternative route, linking BCR/ABL to Ras. 48 However, demonstration of a direct requirement for Shc in BCR/ABL signaling and transformation will require the use of Shc dominant-negative mutants in cells expressing BCR/ABL. 90 It is not yet known whether SHP-2 is required for BCR/ABL-dependent Ras activation and transformation.
