Description
Predicted to have transmembrane receptor protein tyrosine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including melanocyte apoptotic process; melanocyte differentiation; and melanocyte migration. Predicted to localize to integral component of plasma membrane and receptor complex. Is expressed in several structures, including digestive system; integument; mesoderm; nervous system; and neural crest. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including acute myeloid leukemia; gastrointestinal stromal tumor; germ cell cancer (multiple); piebaldism; and renal cell carcinoma. Orthologous to human KIT (KIT proto-oncogene, receptor tyrosine kinase).
