Summary
Enables kinesin binding activity. Acts upstream of or within axo-dendritic transport. Located in ciliary rootlet; cytosol; and neuron projection. Part of kinesin complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in SPOAN syndrome. Orthologous to human KLC2 (kinesin light chain 2). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
