Gene: Kif1a (kinesin family member 1A) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Kif1a
Name: kinesin family member 1A
Description: Exhibits identical protein binding activity and microtubule binding activity. Involved in nervous system development and transport along microtubule. Localizes to several cellular components, including microtubule; neuronal cell body; and secretory vesicle. Biomarker of synucleinopathy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant non-syndromic intellectual disability 9; hereditary sensory neuropathy; hereditary sensory neuropathy type 2C; hereditary spastic paraplegia; and hereditary spastic paraplegia 30. Orthologous to human KIF1A (kinesin family member 1A); INTERACTS WITH 17beta-estradiol; aldehydo-D-glucose; atrazine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: axonal transport of synaptic vesicles-like; kinesin-like protein KIF1A; LOC363288; neuron-specific kinesin motor KIF1A
