Cell Death and Differentiation  2014;22(1):58-73.
Cells exposed to extreme physicochemical or mechanical stimuli die in an uncontrollable manner, as a result of their immediate structural breakdown. Such an unavoidable variant of cellular demise is generally referred to as ‘accidental cell death' (ACD). In most settings, however, cell death is initiated by a genetically encoded apparatus, correlating with the fact that its course can be altered by pharmacologic or genetic interventions. ‘Regulated cell death' (RCD) can occur as part of physiologic programs or can be activated once adaptive responses to perturbations of the extracellular or intracellular microenvironment fail. The biochemical phenomena that accompany RCD may be harnessed to classify it into a few subtypes, which often (but not always) exhibit stereotyped morphologic features. Nonetheless, efficiently inhibiting the processes that are commonly thought to cause RCD, such as the activation of executioner caspases in the course of apoptosis, does not exert true cytoprotective effects in the mammalian system, but simply alters the kinetics of cellular demise as it shifts its morphologic and biochemical correlates. Conversely, bona fide cytoprotection can be achieved by inhibiting the transduction of lethal signals in the early phases of the process, when adaptive responses are still operational. Thus, the mechanisms that truly execute RCD may be less understood, less inhibitable and perhaps more homogeneous than previously thought. Here, the Nomenclature Committee on Cell Death formulates a set of recommendations to help scientists and researchers to discriminate between essential and accessory aspects of cell death.

24.  Evidence for a requirement for both phospholipid and phosphotyrosine binding via the Shc phosphotyrosine-binding domain in vivo. 
Molecular and Cellular Biology  1997;17(9):5540-5549.
The adapter protein Shc is a critical component of mitogenic signaling pathways initiated by a number of receptors. Shc can directly bind to several tyrosine-phosphorylated receptors through its phosphotyrosine-binding (PTB) domain, and a role for the PTB domain in phosphotyrosine-mediated signaling has been well documented. The structure of the Shc PTB domain demonstrated a striking homology to the structures of pleckstrin homology domains, which suggested acidic phospholipids as a second ligand for the Shc PTB domain. Here we demonstrate that Shc binding via its PTB domain to acidic phospholipids is as critical as binding to phosphotyrosine for leading to Shc phosphorylation. Through structure-based, targeted mutagenesis of the Shc PTB domain, we first identified the residues within the PTB domain critical for phospholipid binding in vitro. In vivo, the PTB domain was essential for localization of Shc to the membrane, as mutant Shc proteins that failed to interact with phospholipids in vitro also failed to localize to the membrane. We also observed that PTB domain-dependent targeting to the membrane preceded the PTB domain's interaction with the tyrosine-phosphorylated receptor and that both events were essential for tyrosine phosphorylation of Shc following receptor activation. Thus, Shc, through its interaction with two different ligands, is able to accomplish both membrane localization and binding to the activated receptor via a single PTB domain.

25.  Interaction of Shc with Grb2 regulates association of Grb2 with mSOS. 
Molecular and Cellular Biology  1995;15(2):593-600.
The adapter protein Shc has been implicated in Ras signaling via many receptors, including the T-cell antigen receptor (TCR), B-cell antigen receptor, interleukin-2 receptor, interleukin-3 receptor, erythropoietin receptor, and insulin receptor. Moreover, transformation via polyomavirus middle T antigen is dependent on its interaction with Shc and Shc tyrosine phosphorylation. One of the mechanisms of TCR-mediated, tyrosine kinase-dependent Ras activation involves the simultaneous interaction of phosphorylated Shc with the TCR zeta chain and with a second adapter protein, Grb2. Grb2, in turn, interacts with the Ras guanine nucleotide exchange factor mSOS, thereby leading to Ras activation. Although it has been reported that in fibroblasts Grb2 and mSOS constitutively associate with each other and that growth factor stimulation does not alter the levels of Grb2:mSOS association, we show here that TCR stimulation leads to a significant increase in the levels of Grb2 associated with mSOS. This enhanced Grb2:mSOS association, which occurs through an SH3-proline-rich sequence interaction, is regulated through the SH2 domain of Grb2. The following observations support a role for Shc in regulating the Grb2:mSOS association: (i) a phosphopeptide corresponding to the sequence surrounding Tyr-317 of Shc, which displaces Shc from Grb2, abolished the enhanced association between Grb2 and mSOS; and (ii) addition of phosphorylated Shc to unactivated T cell lysates was sufficient to enhance the interaction of Grb2 with mSOS. Furthermore, using fusion proteins encoding different domains of Shc, we show that the collagen homology domain of Shc (which includes the Tyr-317 site) can mediate this effect. Thus, the Shc-mediated regulation of Grb2:mSOS association may provide a means for controlling the extent of Ras activation following receptor stimulation.
