Structure and expression of a murine homologue of sky receptor tyrosine kinase gene.

To identify new receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs), we screened cDNAs from mouse mammary tumor cells and mouse brain. A homology search of the complete cDNA sequences obtained showed that one cDNA was a murine homologue of recently reported human sky [Ohashi, K. et al. (1994) Oncogene 9, 699-705]. Another cDNA obtained was also related to sky but had a 5… (More)
