26630010 Data show that leukocyte tyrosine kinase (LTK) ligand FAM150A (augmentor-beta; AUG-beta) is specific for LTK and only weakly binds to anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK).
26418745 In conclusion, these data show that ALK is robustly activated by the FAM150A/B ligands.
25331893 Only two related secreted factors, FAM150A and FAM150B (family with sequence similarity 150 member A and member B), stimulated LTK phosphorylation.
