Gene Symbol AXL
Synonyms ARK | JTK11 | Tyro7 | UFO
Gene Description AXL, AXL receptor tyrosine kinase, is a receptor tyrosine kinase, which promotes growth, migration, and survival of tumor cells through activation of Mapk signaling (PMID: 28072762). Activation and overexpression of AXL has been associated with resistance to chemotherapeutic agents and targeted therapies (PMID: 28251492), in both solid and hematological tumors (PMID: 32148495).


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.

Variant Impact Protein Effect Variant Description Associated with drug Resistance
act mut unknown gain of function AXL act mut indicates that this variant results in a gain of function in the Axl protein. However, the specific amino acid change has not been identified.
inact mut unknown loss of function AXL inact mut indicates that this variant results in a loss of function of the Axl protein. However, the specific amino acid change has not been identified.
mutant unknown unknown AXL mutant indicates an unspecified mutation in the AXL gene.
rearrange unknown unknown AXL rearrange indicates an unspecified rearrangement of the AXL gene.
G335fs frameshift loss of function - predicted AXL G335fs results in a change in the amino acid sequence of the Axl protein beginning at aa 335 of 894, likely resulting in premature truncation of the functional protein ( Due to the loss of the protein kinase domain (, G335fs is predicted to lead to a loss of Axl protein function.
