Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including cytoskeletal protein binding activity; ion channel binding activity; and protein tyrosine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of macromolecule metabolic process; nervous system development; and regulation of signal transduction. Localizes to several cellular components, including the Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse; actin filament; and postsynaptic density. Used to study skin disease and skin squamous cell carcinoma. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease and schizophrenia. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; cranial nerve; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human FYN (FYN proto-oncogene, Src family tyrosine kinase).
