This gene encodes a receptor tyrosine kinase-like orphan receptor that modulates neurite growth in the central nervous system. The encoded protein is a glycosylated type I membrane protein that belongs to the ROR subfamily of cell surface receptors. It is a pseudokinase that lacks catalytic activity and may interact with the non-canonical Wnt signalling pathway. This gene is highly expressed during early embryonic development but expressed at very low levels in adult tissues. Increased expression of this gene is associated with B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukaemia. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms.

GeneCards Summary for ROR1 Gene
ROR1 (Receptor Tyrosine Kinase Like Orphan Receptor 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ROR1 include Deafness, Autosomal Recessive 108 and Autosomal Recessive Non-Syndromic Sensorineural Deafness Type Dfnb. Among its related pathways are Nanog in Mammalian ESC Pluripotency and Signaling by GPCR. Gene Ontology (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 ROR2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for ROR1 Gene
Has very low kinase activity in vitro and is unlikely to function as a tyrosine kinase in vivo (PubMed:25029443). Receptor for ligand WNT5A which activate downstream NFkB signaling pathway and may result in the inhibition of WNT3A-mediated signaling (PubMed:25029443, PubMed:27162350). In inner ear, crucial for spiral ganglion neurons to innervate auditory hair cells (PubMed:27162350).
