Tyrosine phosphorylated ITAM in FCERI gamma subunit serves as docking site for SYK (spleen tyrosine kinases), whereas the beta-subunit ITAM has an extra tyrosine and is shorter than canonical ITAM which makes it unfit to bind SYK. Association of SYK to FCERI gamma-subunit disrupts the COOH-terminal-SH2 interdomain interaction of SYK causing a conformational change opening the molecule leading to its activation (Siraganian et al. 2010, de Castro et al. 2010).
