Gene: Musk (muscle associated receptor tyrosine kinase) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Musk
Name: muscle associated receptor tyrosine kinase
Description: Exhibits protein kinase binding activity and protein tyrosine kinase activity; involved in several processes, including modulation of chemical synaptic transmission, positive regulation of macromolecule metabolic process, and sensory organ development; localizes to the cell projection, external side of plasma membrane, and neuromuscular junction; orthologous to human MUSK (muscle associated receptor tyrosine kinase); PARTICIPATES IN acetylcholine signaling pathway via nicotinic acetylcholine receptor; INTERACTS WITH 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; ammonium chloride; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: muscle specific kinase (neural fold/somite kinase 1); muscle, skeletal receptor tyrosine protein kinase; muscle, skeletal, receptor tyrosine kinase; muscle-specific kinase receptor; muscle-specific tyrosine kinase receptor MuSK; muscle-specific tyrosine protein kinase receptor; Nsk1
