MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene is a member of the MER/AXL/TYRO3 receptor kinase family and encodes a transmembrane protein with two fibronectin type-III domains, two Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains, and one tyrosine kinase domain. Mutations in this gene have been associated with disruption of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) phagocytosis pathway and onset of autosomal recessive retinitis pigmentosa (RP). [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygotes for targeted null mutations show increased sensitivity to LPS-induced shock, defective phagocytosis of apoptotic cells, lupus-like autoimmunity, degeneration of photoreceptors, decreased platelet aggregation and protection from induced pulmonary thromboembolism and thrombosis.
