Gene: KIF23 (kinesin family member 23) Homo sapiens
Symbol: KIF23
Name: kinesin family member 23
Description: Exhibits microtubule binding activity. Involved in mitotic cytokinesis; mitotic spindle midzone assembly; and positive regulation of cytokinesis. Localizes to the Flemming body; microtubule cytoskeleton; and nucleoplasm.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
