    ..This multidomain control over kinase activation state provides a structural mechanism to account for ITK's ability to tune the TCR signal. ..

    ..Finally, we describe the complex role of Itk signaling in effector T-cell differentiation and the regulation of cytokine gene expression. Together, these data implicate Itk as an important modulator of T-cell signaling and function. ..
