Gene: Kif5a (kinesin family member 5A) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Kif5a
Name: kinesin family member 5A
RGD ID: 1303035
Description: Enables scaffold protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including axonal transport; cellular response to ethanol; and forebrain development. Located in several cellular components, including P-body; central region of growth cone; and perikaryon. Part of kinesin complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; hereditary spastic paraplegia 10; multiple sclerosis; prostate cancer; and rheumatoid arthritis. Orthologous to human KIF5A (kinesin family member 5A); PARTICIPATES IN mitochondria transport pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 4,4'-sulfonyldiphenol; acetamide.
Type: protein-coding
Previously known as: kinesin heavy chain isoform 5A; kinesin heavy chain neuron-specific 1; neuronal kinesin heavy chain; NKHC
