    ..These findings show that Cbl family proteins negatively regulate T cell activation by promoting clearance of engaged TCR from the cell surface, a process that is apparently essential for the termination of TCR signals. ..

    ..Moreover, the upregulation of downstream genes of Runx2 such as osteocalcin and alkaline phosphatase mRNA was also observed. These data propose the involvement of Cbl-b in the regulation of osteoblast-related genes expression. ..

    ..Thus, ?(2) integrins limit TLR signaling by inhibiting NF-?B pathway activation and promoting p38 MAPK activation, thereby fine-tuning TLR-induced inflammatory responses. ..

    ..To the best of our knowledge, this represents the first identification of a mammalian gene product that is specifically required for in vivo resistance to disease mediated by a type III-secreted effector. ..

    ..Our results demonstrate that CD28 costimulation regulates the threshold for T cell activation, at least in part, by promoting Cbl-b ubiquitination and degradation. ..
