Lyn proto oncogene (Lcl/Yes related novel protein tyrosine kinase) is encoded by the Lyn gene located on chromosome 8 in humans and belongs to the Src family kinase. It is a non-receptor tyrosine kinase that acts as a mediator in transducing cellular signaling. The most well studied expression of Lyn is in hematopoietic cell types, both lymphoid and myeloid cells with exclusion in T lymphocytes. It has also been observed that Lyn plays diverse roles such as in regulation of B cell receptor signaling, mast cell signaling and Epithelial - Mesenchymal Transition (EMT).
