Gene: KIF2C (kinesin family member 2C) Homo sapiens
Symbol: KIF2C
Name: kinesin family member 2C
Description: Exhibits microtubule plus-end binding activity. Involved in attachment of mitotic spindle microtubules to kinetochore; microtubule cytoskeleton organization; and regulation of chromosome segregation. Localizes to the kinetochore and microtubule plus-end. Predicted to colocalize with the cytoplasmic microtubule.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: CT139; kinesin-like 6; kinesin-like protein 6; kinesin-like protein KIF2C; kinesin-related protein 2; KNSL6; MCAK; mitotic centromere-associated kinesin; testis tissue sperm-binding protein Li 68n
