Aliases for STYK1 Gene
External Ids for STYK1 Gene
Receptor protein tyrosine kinases, like STYK1, play important roles in diverse cellular and developmental processes, such as cell proliferation, differentiation, and survival (Liu et al., 2004 [PubMed 15150103]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
GeneCards Summary for STYK1 Gene
STYK1 (Serine/Threonine/Tyrosine Kinase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with STYK1 include chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuritis. Among its related pathways are Focal adhesion. GO annotations related to this gene include non-membrane spanning protein tyrosine kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is TEK.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for STYK1 Gene
Probable tyrosine protein-kinase, which has strong transforming capabilities on a variety of cell lines. When overexpressed, it can also induce tumor cell invasion as well as metastasis in distant organs. May act by activating both MAP kinase and phosphatidylinositol 3-kinases (PI3K) pathways (By similarity).
