The LMR kinases are unusual amongst the RTKs in possessing a short extracellular domain and extended intracellular domain (hence the ‘Lemur’ name reflecting the long tail). A precise function for these receptors has yet to be defined, although LMR1 was identified as a potential marker of apoptosis [1], giving rise to the name AATYK (Apoptosis-associated tyrosine kinase); while over-expression induces differentiation in neuroblastoma cells [2].
