tyrosine kinase

n.
Any of a family of enzymes that phosphorylate tyrosine in certain proteins and play an important role in cell signaling. Mutations that affect their activity or expression can cause leukemia and other cancers.

Approximately 90% of GIST cases are associated with mutations of KIT and PDGFRA tyrosine kinases, leading to dysregulation of cell growth.
Jaks are cytoplasmic tyrosine kinases. These kinases are capable of binding with a certain type of cell surface receptors that in turn cause transfer of extracellular signals to the nucleus which automatically stimulate or inactivate transcription of the target genes.2,3

In this regard, one of the most immediate events occurring following neutrophil activation is the phosphorylation of cellular proteins by nonreceptor tyrosine kinases such as members of the Src family (including Hck, Fgr, and Lyn), as well as Syk [16-22].

Afatinib is a potent irreversible inhibitor of all members of the ERBB family of receptor tyrosine kinases. It is designed to covalently bind to cystine 797 within the catalytic domain of EGFR, thus blocking the ATP binding site.

The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) family consists of four members: EGFR/ErbB1/HER1, ErbB2/Neu/HER2, ErbB3/HER3, and ErbB4/HER4 which are transmembrane tyrosine kinases controlling cell proliferation, differentiation, and migration.
