Lck is a Src family kinase primary expressed in T cells. The modular structure is formed by an N-terminal tail, containing a dicysteine motif which is important for the constitutive interactions with the CD4 and CD8 molecules, a Src homology 3 (SH3) domain, a SH2 domain, the catalytic core and a C-terminal negative regulatory domain. During TCR-MHC/peptide interactions, Lck is recruited to the complex via association with either CD8 or CD4 coreceptors. After coligation of the TCR and the coreceptors, active Lck is proximally positioned to phosphorylate-specific tyrosine residues within ITAMs (immunoreceptor tyrosine-based activation motifs) located within the CD3 and TCR. The signal propagation leads to recruitment of ZAP-70 and Syk and finally to T cell activation. Lck plays also a role in the interleukin 2 (IL-2) signaling pathway that controls the T-cell proliferative response.
