Gene: Kif3a (kinesin family member 3a) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Kif3a
Name: kinesin family member 3a
Description: Exhibits kinesin binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of axo-dendritic protein transport; positive regulation of establishment or maintenance of cell polarity regulating cell shape; and positive regulation of receptor-mediated endocytosis. Localizes to axon cytoplasm; axoneme; and neuronal cell body. Colocalizes with ribbon synapse. Orthologous to human KIF3A (kinesin family member 3A); PARTICIPATES IN Hedgehog signaling pathway; insulin responsive facilitative sugar transporter mediated glucose transport pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,4-dinitrotoluene; 2,6-dinitrotoluene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
