Gene: Kif21a (kinesin family member 21A) Mus musculus
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. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; skeletal musculature; spinal ganglion or nerve; and trigeminal nerve. Used to study congenital fibrosis of the extraocular muscles. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital fibrosis of the extraocular muscles. Orthologous to human KIF21A (kinesin family member 21A); INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzofuran.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: AI850764; kinesin-like protein KIF21A; mKIAA1708; N-5 kinesin
