DESCRIPTION
Also known as DOK7_HUMAN, DOK7, C4orf25. Probable muscle-intrinsic activator of MUSK that plays an essential role in neuromuscular synaptogenesis. Acts in aneural activation of MUSK and subsequent acetylcholine receptor (AchR) clustering in myotubes. Induces autophosphorylation of MUSK. Homodimer (By similarity). Forms a heterotetramer composed of 2 DOK7 and 2 MUSK molecules which facilitates MUSK trans-autophosphorylation on tyrosine residue and activation (By similarity). Interacts (via IRS-type PTB domain) with MUSK (via cytoplasmic part); requires MUSK phosphorylation.
