Previous GeneCards Identifiers for CRK Gene
This gene encodes a member of an adapter protein family that binds to several tyrosine-phosphorylated proteins. The product of this gene has several SH2 and SH3 domains (src-homology domains) and is involved in several signaling pathways, recruiting cytoplasmic proteins in the vicinity of tyrosine kinase through SH2-phosphotyrosine interaction. The N-terminal SH2 domain of this protein functions as a positive regulator of transformation whereas the C-terminal SH3 domain functions as a negative regulator of transformation. Two alternative transcripts encoding different isoforms with distinct biological activity have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for CRK Gene
CRK (CRK Proto-Oncogene, Adaptor Protein) is a Protein Coding gene.

Among its related pathways are Signal transduction_JNK pathway and Development FGFR signaling pathway. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include protein domain specific binding and SH3/SH2 adaptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is CRKL.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for CRK Gene
Isoform Crk-II: Regulates cell adhesion, spreading and migration. Mediates attachment-induced MAPK8 activation, membrane ruffling and cell motility in a Rac-dependent manner. Involved in phagocytosis of apoptotic cells and cell motility via its interaction with DOCK1 and DOCK4. May regulate the EFNA5-EPHA3 signaling.
