Summaries for SLITRK3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SLITRK3 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the Slitrk family of structurally related transmembrane proteins that are involved in controlling neurite outgrowth. The encoded protein contains two leucine-rich repeat (LRR) domains and a C-terminal domain that is partially similar to Trk neurotrophin receptor protein. Enhanced expression of this gene was found in tissue from several different types of tumors. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants, all encoding the same protein.
