Gene: Klc2 (kinesin light chain 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Klc2
Name: kinesin light chain 2
Description: Exhibits kinesin binding activity. Involved in axo-dendritic transport. Localizes to the cytoskeleton; cytosol; and neuron projection. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in SPOAN syndrome. Orthologous to human KLC2 (kinesin light chain 2); INTERACTS WITH 2,4-dibromophenyl 2,4,5-tribromophenyl ether; benzo[a]pyrene; ethanol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: 8030455F02Rik; AW212649; KLC 2; KLC-2
