The function of the normal gene product contains an extracellular region, composed of three immunoglobulin domains, a hydrophobic membrane-spanning segment and a cytoplasmic tyrosine kinase domain (2). These allow normal interactions between fibroblasts resulting in normal bone growth. With a glycine in the place of an argenine, the conformation changes, so the protein does not span the membrane as many times, causing different interactions between fibroblasts, ultimately resulting in abnormal bone growth...
