CD167a antigens

CD167a antigens general information

CD167a Gene ID 780
CD167a Official Full Name discoidin domain receptor tyrosine kinase 1
CD167a Alias DDR1, MCK10
CD167a Cellular Expression B; Dendritic; Epithelial
CD167a Ligand/Receptor/Association collagen
CD167a Function Receptor tyrosine kinase involved in cell-cell interactions
CD167a Summary Receptor tyrosine kinases play a key role in the communication of cells with their microenvironment. These kinases are involved in the regulation of cell growth, differentiation and metabolism. The protein encoded by this gene belongs to a subfamily of tyrosine kinase receptors with homology to Dictyostelium discoideum protein discoidin I in their extracellular domain, and that are activated by various types of collagen. Expression of this protein is restricted to epithelial cells, particularly in the kidney, lung, gastrointestinal tract, and brain. In addition, it has been shown to be significantly overexpressed in several human tumors. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described for this gene.
