a cytoplasmic tyrosine kinase of the SYK family containing two SH2 domains. Plays a central role in the B cell receptor (BCR) response. An upstream activator of the PI3K, PLCgamma2, and Rac/cdc42 pathways in the BCR response. Required for the sequential events of Fc gamma IIa receptor-mediated phagocytosis. Expression highest in murine spleen, heart, mammary gland and thymus. Two splice variant isoforms have been described. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
