a non-receptor tyrosine kinase of the Fer family. Regulates cell-cell adhesion and mediates signaling from the cell surface to the cytoskeleton via growth factor receptors. Increased expression associated with prostate cancer proliferation, and antisense blocks soft agar growth. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
