Summaries for LTK Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for LTK Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the ros/insulin receptor family of tyrosine kinases. Tyrosine-specific phosphorylation of proteins is a key to the control of diverse pathways leading to cell growth and differentiation. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008]

GeneCards Summary for LTK Gene

LTK (Leukocyte Receptor Tyrosine Kinase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with LTK include lymphatic system cancer and systemic lupus erythematosus. GO annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring phosphorus-containing groups and protein tyrosine kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ALK.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for LTK Gene

  • Orphan receptor with a tyrosine-protein kinase activity. The exact function of this protein is not known. Studies with chimeric proteins (replacing its extracellular region with that of several known growth factor receptors, such as EGFR and CSFIR) demonstrate its ability to promote growth and specifically neurite outgrowth, and cell survival. Signaling appears to involve the PI3 kinase pathway. Involved in regulation of the secretory pathway involving endoplasmic reticulum (ER) export sites (ERESs) and ER to Golgi transport.

  • Note=Genetic variations in LTK that cause up-regulation of the PI3K pathway may possibly contribute to susceptibility to abnormal proliferation of self-reactive B-cells and, therefore, to systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). SLE is a chronic, inflammatory and often febrile multisystemic disorder of connective tissue, thought to represent a failure of the regulatory mechanisms of the autoimmune system.
