Gene: Kif5c (kinesin family member 5C) Mus musculus
Symbol: Kif5c
Name: kinesin family member 5C
Description: Predicted to have ATP-dependent microtubule motor activity, plus-end-directed; apolipoprotein receptor binding activity; and microtubule binding activity. Involved in mRNA transport and motor neuron axon guidance. Localizes to several cellular components, including the axonal growth cone; ciliary rootlet; and neuronal cell body. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in complex cortical dysplasia with other brain malformations 2 and schizophrenia. Is expressed in several structures, including genitourinary system; nervous system; nose; and retina. Orthologous to human KIF5C (kinesin family member 5C); PARTICIPATES IN mitochondria transport pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: Khc; kinesin heavy chain isoform 5C; kinesin heavy chain member 5C; kinesin heavy chain neuron-specific 2; KINN; NKHC; NKHC2
