Summaries for DOK6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DOK6 Gene

  • DOK6 is a member of the DOK (see DOK1; MIM 602919) family of intracellular adaptors that play a role in the RET (MIM 164761) signaling cascade (Crowder et al., 2004 [PubMed 15286081]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

GeneCards Summary for DOK6 Gene

DOK6 (Docking Protein 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Developmental Biology and RET signaling. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include insulin receptor binding. An important paralog of this gene is DOK5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DOK6 Gene

  • DOK proteins are enzymatically inert adaptor or scaffolding proteins. They provide a docking platform for the assembly of multimolecular signaling complexes. DOK6 promotes Ret-mediated neurite growth. May have a role in brain development and/or maintenance.
