ALK

Anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) also known as ALK tyrosine kinase receptor or CD246, is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the ALK gene. ALK is a membrane associated tyrosine kinase receptor of the insulin receptor superfamily. The function of the full-length ALK receptor is poorly understood. It has a probable role in the central and peripheral nervous system development and maintenance. ALK is a dependence receptor, which may exert antagonist functions, proapoptotic or antiapoptotic, depending on the absence or presence of a ligand. Dependence receptors have a potential role in cancer and development. The EML4-ALK fusion gene is responsible for approximately 3-5% of non-small-cell lung cancer(NSCLC) and this gene product was designed for the treatment of NSCLC.
