SRC-FAMILY KINASES

Sarcoma-family kinases. The first member of this family to be found was the v-Src protein. It was produced by virus, that was isolated in chickens. This was the Rous Sarcoma virus, the first cancer-inducing virus ever found. The protein is not cancer-inducing, just the virus. Calm down. Since then, the protein - which is a normal and necessary part of cell growth - has been found in many organisms, including humans.

What does SRC-FAMILY KINASES mean?

src-Family Kinases
A PROTEIN-TYROSINE KINASE family that was originally identified by homology to the Rous sarcoma virus ONCOGENE PROTEIN PP60(V-SRC). They interact with a variety of cell-surface receptors and participate in intracellular signal transduction pathways. Oncogenic forms of src-family kinases can occur through altered regulation or expression of the endogenous protein and by virally encoded src (v-src) genes.
