Previous Symbols for ROR2 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a receptor protein tyrosine kinase and type I transmembrane protein that belongs to the ROR subfamily of cell surface receptors. The protein may be involved in the early formation of the chondrocytes and may be required for cartilage and growth plate development. Mutations in this gene can cause brachydactyly type B, a skeletal disorder characterized by hypoplasia/aplasia of distal phalanges and nails. In addition, mutations in this gene can cause the autosomal recessive form of Robinow syndrome, which is characterized by skeletal dysplasia with generalized limb bone shortening, segmental defects of the spine, brachydactyly, and a dysmorphic facial appearance.

GeneCards Summary for ROR2 Gene
ROR2 (Receptor Tyrosine Kinase-Like Orphan Receptor 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ROR2 include robinow syndrome, autosomal recessive and ror2-related robinow syndrome. Among its related pathways are GPCR Pathway and Signaling by GPCR. GO annotations related to this gene include frizzled binding and Wnt-protein binding. An important paralog of this gene is ALK.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ROR2 Gene
Tyrosine-protein kinase receptor which may be involved in the early formation of the chondrocytes. It seems to be required for cartilage and growth plate development. Phosphorylates YWHAB, leading to induction of osteogenesis and bone formation.
