General annotation (Comments)

Function

Neuronal orphan receptor tyrosine kinase that is essentially and transiently expressed in specific regions of the central and peripheral nervous systems and plays an important role in the genesis and differentiation of the nervous system. Transduces signals from ligands at the cell surface, through specific activation of the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway. Phosphorylates almost exclusively at the first tyrosine of the Y-x-x-x-Y-Y motif. Following activation by ligand, ALK induces tyrosine phosphorylation of CBL, FRS2, IRS1 and SHC1, as well as of the MAP kinases MAPK1/ERK2 and MAPK3/ERK1. Acts as a receptor for ligands pleiotrophin (PTN), a secreted growth factor, and midkine (MDK), a PTN-related factor, thus participating in PTN and MDK signal transduction. PTN-binding induces MAPK pathway activation, which is important for the anti-apoptotic signaling of PTN and regulation of cell proliferation. MDK-binding induces phosphorylation of the ALK target insulin receptor substrate (IRS1), activates mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) and PI3-kinase, resulting also in cell proliferation induction. Drives NF-kappa-B activation, probably through IRS1 and the activation of the AKT serine/threonine kinase. Recruitment of IRS1 to activated ALK and the activation of NF-kappa-B are essential for the autocrine growth and survival signaling of MDK. Ref.3 Ref.4 Ref.5 Ref.6

Catalytic activity

ATP + a [protein]-L-tyrosine = ADP + a [protein]-L-tyrosine phosphate.

Enzyme regulation

Activated by ligand-binding and subsequent phosphorylation By similarity. Inactivated through dephosphorylation by receptor protein tyrosine phosphatase beta and zeta complex (PTPRB/PTPRZ1), when there is no stimulation by a ligand. Staurosporine, crizotinib and CH5424802 act as inhibitors of ALK kinase activity By similarity.

Subunit structure

Homodimer. Homodimerizes when bound to ligand By similarity. Interacts with CBL, IRS1, PIK3R1, PLCG1 and SHC1. Interacts with FRS2, PTN and MDK. Ref.3 Ref.5

Subcellular location

Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein By similarity. Note: Membrane attachment was crucial for promotion of neuron-like differentiation and cell proliferation arrest through specific activation of the MAP kinase pathway By similarity.

Tissue specificity

Mainly expressed in central nervous system (CNS) and other parts of the brain. Expression is also found in peripheral nervous systems, eye, nasal epithelium, olfactory nerve, tongue, skin, tissue surrounding the esophagus, stomach, midgut, as well as testis and ovary. Ref.4

Post-translational modification

Phosphorylated at tyrosine residues by autocatalysis, which activates kinase activity By similarity. In cells not stimulated by a ligand, receptor protein tyrosine phosphatase beta and zeta complex (PTPRB/PTPRZ1) dephosphorylates ALK at the sites in ALK that are undergoing autophosphorylation through autoactivation By similarity. Ref.3 Ref.5

N-glycosylated By similarity.

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Tyr protein kinase family. Insulin receptor subfamily.

Contains 1 LDL-receptor class A domain.

Contains 2 MAM domains.

Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
