Gene: Kif21a (kinesin family member 21A) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Kif21a
Name: kinesin family member 21A
Description: Predicted to have ATPase activity; microtubule binding activity; and microtubule motor activity. Predicted to be involved in microtubule-based movement. Predicted to localize to cytosol; microtubule cytoskeleton; and plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital fibrosis of the extraocular muscles. Orthologous to human KIF21A (kinesin family member 21A); INTERACTS WITH 17beta-estradiol; 2,6-dinitrotoluene; 2-methoxyethanol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: kinesin-like protein KIF21A; LOC300158
