Gene: MUSK (muscle associated receptor tyrosine kinase) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MUSK
Name: muscle associated receptor tyrosine kinase
CRRD ID: 731781
Description: Predicted to have PDZ domain binding activity; collagen binding activity; and protein tyrosine kinase collagen receptor activity. Involved in neuromuscular junction development and positive regulation of protein phosphorylation. Localizes to receptor complex. Implicated in congenital myasthenic syndrome 9 and fetal akinesia deformation sequence syndrome 1. Biomarker of myasthenia gravis.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
