Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits several functions, including connexin binding activity; ephrin receptor binding activity; and scaffold protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; positive regulation of cellular protein metabolic process; and regulation of signal transduction. Localizes to several cellular components, including actin cytoskeleton; caveola; and ruffle membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; early conceptus; genitourinary system; gut; and retina. Used to study Williams-Beuren syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in colon cancer; colorectal cancer; ductal carcinoma in situ; prostate cancer; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human SRC (SRC proto-oncogene, non-receptor tyrosine kinase).
