Non Receptor Tyrosine Protein Kinase TYK2
Non-Receptor Tyrosine-Protein Kinase TYK2
Tyrosine Kinase 2
A Janus kinase subtype that is involved in signaling from a broad variety of CYTOKINE RECEPTORS. The TYK2 kinase is considered the founding member of the janus kinase family and was initially discovered as a signaling partner for the INTERFERON ALPHA-BETA RECEPTOR. The kinase has since been shown to signal from several INTERLEUKIN RECEPTORS.
