This gene encodes a member of the neurotrophic tyrosine kinase receptor (NTKR) family. This kinase is a membrane-bound receptor that upon neurotrophin binding phosphorylates itself and members of the MAPK pathway. The presence of this kinase leads to cell differentiation and may play a role in specifying sensory neuron subtypes. Mutations in this gene have been associated with congenital insensitivity to pain anhidrosis self-mutilating behavior mental retardation and cancer. Alternate transcriptional splice variants of this gene have been found but only three have been characterized to date. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
