Gene: KIF21A (kinesin family member 21A) Homo sapiens
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. Localizes to the cytosol and plasma membrane. Implicated in congenital fibrosis of the extraocular muscles.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
