STYK1, a probable tyrosine protein-kinase, which has strong transforming capabilities on a variety of cell lines. When overexpressed, it can also induce tumor cell invasion as well as metastasis in distant organs. May act by activating both MAP kinase and phosphatidylinositol 3'-kinases (PI3K) pathways. It is widely expressed; highly expressed in brain, placenta and prostate. STYK1 is expressed in tumor cells such as hepatoma cells LO2, cervix carcinoma cells HeLa, ovary cancer cells Ho8910 and chronic myelogenous leukemia cells K562, but not in other tumor cells such as epidermoid carcinoma.
