Docking protein 4 (DOK4)

DOK proteins are enzymatically inert adaptor or scaffolding proteins. They provide a docking platform for the assembly of multimolecular signaling complexes.

DOK4 works in RET-mediated neurite outgrowth and plays a positive role in activation of the MAP kinase pathway (By similarity). Putative connection with downstream effectors of RET in neuronal differentiation.
