Summary
This gene encodes a member of a family of molecular motors which are involved in intracellular transport of protein complexes, membrane organelles, and messenger ribonucleic acid along microtubules. Kinesins function as homodimeric molecules with two N-terminal head domains that move along microtubules and two C-terminal tail domains that interact with the transported cargo, either directly or indirectly, through adapter molecules. This gene is ubiquitously expressed in coronary arteries and other vascular tissue. A naturally occurring mutation in this gene is associated with coronary heart disease.

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.
