Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have transmembrane receptor protein tyrosine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; neutrophil clearance; and protein kinase B signaling. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the extracellular space; photoreceptor outer segment; and rhabdomere. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in retinitis pigmentosa 38. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; early conceptus; genitourinary system; immune system; and retina. Orthologous to human MERTK (MER proto-oncogene, tyrosine kinase).
