Gene: KIF5B (kinesin family member 5B) Homo sapiens
Symbol: KIF5B
Name: kinesin family member 5B
Description: Exhibits identical protein binding activity; microtubule binding activity; and microtubule motor activity. Involved in several processes, including centrosome localization; positive regulation of protein localization to plasma membrane; and vesicle transport along microtubule. Localizes to the centriolar satellite; cytosol; and vesicle; PARTICIPATES IN N-cadherin signaling pathway; insulin responsive facilitative sugar transporter mediated glucose transport pathway; mitochondria transport pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17beta-hydroxy-17-methylestra-4,9,11-trien-3-one; copper(II) sulfate; cyclosporin A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
