Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits magnesium ion binding activity; manganese ion binding activity; and protein tyrosine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including nervous system development; positive regulation of cell communication; and transmembrane receptor protein tyrosine kinase signaling pathway. Localizes to several cellular components, including glutamatergic synapse; lamellipodium; and phagocytic cup. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; diaphragm; hindlimb long bone; liver; and seminiferous cord. Orthologous to human ABL2 (ABL proto-oncogene 2, non-receptor tyrosine kinase).
