Feline McDonough Sarcoma-like tyrosine kinase (FLT3) is a member of the class III tyrosine kinase receptor family. Ligand binding induces conformational changes in the FLT3 receptor, which facilitates its dimerization and autophosphorylation. Once fully active, FLT3 receptors can associate with growth factor receptor-bound protein 2 (GRB2) and facilitate downstream regulation of effectors (Masson et al. 2009, Chonabayashi et al. 2013). Experiments confirming this event were performed in mouse cells.
