Lyn \Lyn\, n. A waterfall. See Lin. [Scot.]


n. (context Scotland English) A waterfall.


Tyrosine-protein kinase Lyn is a protein that in humans is encoded in humans by the LYN gene.

Lyn is a member of the Src family of protein tyrosine kinases, which is mainly expressed in hematopoietic cells, in neural tissues liver, and adipose tissue. In various hematopoietic cells, Lyn has emerged as a key enzyme involved in the regulation of cell activation. In these cells, a small amount of LYN is associated with cell surface receptor proteins, including the B cell antigen receptor (BCR), CD40, or CD19. The abbreviation Lyn is derived from Lck/Yes novel tyrosine kinase, Lck and Yes also being members of the Src kinase family.

Lyn (locomotive)

Lyn was a 2-4-2 tank steam locomotive built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1898 for the Lynton and Barnstaple Railway. Between July 1897 and January 1898, employees of many British engineering companies were striking in an attempt to win the right to an eight-hour working day, leaving locomotive builders with large backlogs of unfulfilled orders. Thus, the Lynton and Barnstaple instead consulted the US based Baldwin to produce the engine they needed. After construction in Philadelphia, the loco was disassembled, shipped to Barnstaple, and reassembled by L&B staff in their Pilton workshops.

Lyn, like all the locomotives on the L&B, was named after a local river with a three-letter name, the River Lyn.

After the Lynton and Barnstaple became part of the Southern Railway, Lyn was taken to Eastleigh Works for major overhaul in 1928, returning the following year in Southern Green Livery and carrying the number E762 on the side tanks, as well as the original nameplates on the cab sides.

Lyn was scrapped in 1935, when the line closed.
