Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
ALK tyrosine kinase receptor (EC 184.108.40.206) (Anaplastic lymphoma kinase) (CD antigen CD246)
ALK (anaplastic lymphoma kinase) was originally discovered as a NPM (Nucleophosmin)-ALK fusion protein. The NPM-ALK is a constitutively active oncogenic tyrosine kinase associated with anaplastic lymphoma. Activation of PLCgamma by NPM-ALK has been sμggested as a crucial step for this lymphoma-associated oncogenic tyrosine kinase.
