Previous GeneCards Identifiers for PTK7 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the receptor protein tyrosine kinase family of proteins that transduce extracellular signals across the cell membrane. The encoded protein lacks detectable catalytic tyrosine kinase activity, is involved in the Wnt signaling pathway and plays a role in multiple cellular processes including polarity and adhesion. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2012]
GeneCards Summary for PTK7 Gene
PTK7 (Protein Tyrosine Kinase 7 (Inactive)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PTK7 include panic disorder and agoraphobia. Among its related pathways are Tyrosine Kinases / Adaptors and Wnt Signaling Pathways: beta-Catenin-independent Wnt/PCP Signaling Pathways. 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 NCAM2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PTK7 Gene
Inactive tyrosine kinase involved in Wnt signaling pathway. Component of both the non-canonical (also known as the Wnt/planar cell polarity signaling) and the canonical Wnt signaling pathway. Functions in cell adhesion, cell migration, cell polarity, proliferation, actin cytoskeleton reorganization and apoptosis. Has a role in embryogenesis, epithelial tissue organization and angiogenesis.
