Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have identical protein binding activity and transmembrane receptor protein tyrosine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including nervous system development; response to environmental enrichment; and swimming behavior. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including axon; cell body; and integral component of plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; integumental system; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human ALK (ALK receptor tyrosine kinase).
