Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits hepatocyte growth factor-activated receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; cell surface receptor signaling pathway; and positive regulation of MAPK cascade. Localizes to the membrane. Used to study Gilles de la Tourette syndrome; autistic disorder; breast cancer; and gestational diabetes. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autistic disorder; autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 97; carcinoma (multiple); and multiple myeloma. Orthologous to human MET (MET proto-oncogene, receptor tyrosine kinase).
