FAM83A Probable proto-oncogene that functions in the epidermal growth factor receptor/EGFR signaling pathway. Activates both RAS/MAPK and PI3K/AKT/TOR signaling cascades downstream of EGFR. Required for the RAS/MAPK signaling cascade activation upon EGFR stimulation, it also activates both signaling cascades independently of EGFR activation. Belongs to the FAM83 family. 3 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
