Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have several functions, including phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase binding activity; phosphatidylserine binding activity; and transmembrane receptor protein tyrosine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; myeloid cell homeostasis; and negative regulation of tumor necrosis factor production. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including actin cytoskeleton; cell surface; and extracellular space. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; respiratory system; and visual system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human AXL (AXL receptor tyrosine kinase).
