Therapy Method


DCLK1 (Doublecortin Like Kinase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are B Cell Receptor Signaling Pathway (sino) and Neuroscience. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring phosphorus-containing groups and protein tyrosine kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is DCLK2.

Doublecortin-like kinase 1 (DCLK1) is a validated gastro-intestinal TSC marker correlated to initiation, EMT, and pro-gression. Moreover, tumor-specific expression andextracellular isoform localization make DCLK1 viable for tar-geted therapies
