Gene: KIF18A (kinesin family member 18A) Homo sapiens
Symbol: KIF18A
Name: kinesin family member 18A
Description: Exhibits ATPase activity and cytoskeletal protein binding activity. Involved in microtubule depolymerization and mitotic metaphase plate congression. Localizes to several cellular components, including caveola; kinetochore microtubule; and ruffle. Biomarker of colorectal cancer and stomach cancer.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: DKFZp434G2226; kinesin-like protein KIF18A; MS-KIF18A; PPP1R99
