Retrovirus-associated DNA sequences (src) originally isolated from the rous sarcoma virus (rsv). The proto-oncogene src (c-src) codes for a protein that is a member of the tyrosine kinase family and was the first proto-oncogene identified in the human genome. The human c-src gene is located at 20q12-13 on the long arm of chromosome 20.
