Mechanism of Tyrosine Kinase Receptors
Mechanism of Tyrosine Kinase Receptors

Tyrosine kinase receptors are a family of receptors with a similar structure. They each have a tyrosine kinse domain (which phosphorylates proteins on tyrosine residues), a hormone binding domain, and a carboxyl terminal segment with multiple tyrosines for autophosphorylation.

When hormone binds to the extracellular domain the receptors aggregate.
