Gene: Kit (KIT proto-oncogene receptor tyrosine kinase) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Kit
Name: KIT proto-oncogene receptor tyrosine kinase
RGD ID: 620568
Description: Enables protein tyrosine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of Notch signaling pathway; positive regulation of gastro-intestinal system smooth muscle contraction; and positive regulation of long-term neuronal synaptic plasticity. Located in acrosomal vesicle; cytoplasmic side of plasma membrane; and external side of plasma membrane. Used to study aplastic anemia and male infertility. Biomarker of acute pancreatitis; gastroschisis; and ileus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including gastrointestinal stromal tumor; germ cell cancer (multiple); mastocytosis; piebaldism; and renal cell carcinoma. Orthologous to human KIT (KIT proto-oncogene, receptor tyrosine kinase); PARTICIPATES IN acute myeloid leukemia pathway; cytokine mediated signaling pathway; endocytosis pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,5-hexanedione; 2-acetamidofluorene.
Type: protein-coding
Previously known as: c-kit receptor tyrosine kinase; Kit oncogene; mast/stem cell growth factor receptor; mast/stem cell growth factor receptor Kit; protein kinase; v-kit Hardy-Zuckerman 4 feline sarcoma viral oncogene homolog
