Family Summary

Src (c-Src) is highly similar to the v-src gene of Rous sarcoma virus, and is a non-receptor tyrosine kinase with oncogenic potential. The encoded protein is a tyrosine-protein kinase whose activity can be inhibited by phosphorylation by c-SRC kinase.

* The resources presented here are largely those generated by the Consortium. The sidebar provides public databases that complement Consortium activities. For mice and biosensors, a public database is not available and therefore we have attempted to generate a migration related list for your convenience.

The primary classification of CMKB families is the homeomorphic family, whose members are both homologous (evolved from a common ancestor) and homeomorphic (sharing full-length sequence similarity and a common domain architecture).
