Definition of Leukocyte Tyrosine Kinase
Leukocyte tyrosine kinase is encoded by the human LTK gene. A set of cDNAs represents differently spliced human LTK mRNAs. These cDNAs predict a truncated receptor protein lacking the tyrosine kinase domain and a soluble receptor protein that has neither a transmembrane nor a tyrosine kinase domain. The LTK gene produces not only the putative receptor tyrosine kinase for unknown ligand but also multiple protein products that may have different functions. (from OMIM)
