Gene: KIF16B (kinesin family member 16B) Homo sapiens
Symbol: KIF16B
Name: kinesin family member 16B
Description: Exhibits ATP-dependent microtubule motor activity, plus-end-directed and phosphatidylinositol phosphate binding activity. Involved in several processes, including early endosome to late endosome transport; receptor catabolic process; and regulation of receptor recycling. Localizes to early endosome.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: C20orf23; chromosome 20 open reading frame 23; kinesin motor protein; kinesin-like protein KIF16B; KISC20ORF; SNX23; sorting nexin 23; sorting nexin-23; testis secretory sperm-binding protein Li 201a
