Gene: KIT (KIT proto-oncogene, receptor tyrosine kinase) Homo sapiens
Symbol: KIT
Name: KIT proto-oncogene, receptor tyrosine kinase
Description: Exhibits cytokine binding activity; protein homodimerization activity; and transmembrane receptor protein tyrosine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including cell surface receptor signaling pathway; positive regulation of protein phosphorylation; and protein phosphorylation. Localizes to the extracellular space; fibrillar center; and plasma membrane. Implicated in several diseases, including acute myeloid leukemia; gastrointestinal stromal tumor; germ cell cancer (multiple); piebaldism; and renal cell carcinoma. Biomarker of several diseases, including Hirschsprung's disease; female reproductive organ cancer (multiple); invasive ductal carcinoma; oxyphilic adenoma; and urinary system cancer (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
