Recent evidence indicates the adaptor protein SH2B3 has a major role in the progression of renal diseases. SH2B3 is highly expressed by hematopoietic cells and regulates cytokine signaling, inducing cell-specific effects. Additionally, its expression in other cell types suggests that SH2B3 may have a more extensive role within the kidney. Ex vivo studies have determined targets of SH2B3 cell-specific signaling, while in vivo studies have observed the SH2B3 overall affects in the progression of renal diseases. This mini-review covers the function of SH2B3-expressing cell types that contribute to renal pathologies and their regulation by SH2B3.
