ROR1 gene

receptor tyrosine kinase like orphan receptor 1

From NCBI Gene:

This gene encodes a receptor tyrosine kinase-like orphan receptor that modulates neurite growth in the central nervous system. The encoded protein is a glycosylated type I membrane protein that belongs to the ROR subfamily of cell surface receptors. It is a pseudokinase that lacks catalytic activity and may interact with the non-canonical Wnt signalling pathway. This gene is highly expressed during early embryonic development but expressed at very low levels in adult tissues. Increased expression of this gene is associated with B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukaemia. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms.

From UniProt:

Has very low kinase activity in vitro and is unlikely to function as a tyrosine kinase in vivo. May act as a receptor for wnt ligand WNT5A which may result in the inhibition of WNT3A-mediated signaling.
