This gene encodes a protein belonging to the raf/mil family of serine/threonine protein kinases. This protein plays a role in regulating the MAP kinase/ERKs signaling pathway which affects cell division differentiation and secretion. Mutations in this gene are associated with cardiofaciocutaneous syndrome a disease characterized by heart defects mental retardation and a distinctive facial appearance. Mutations in this gene have also been associated with various cancers including non-Hodgkin lymphoma colorectal cancer malignant melanoma thyroid carcinoma non-small cell lung carcinoma and adenocarcinoma of lung. A pseudogene which is located on chromosome X has been identified for this gene. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
