Gene: Kif2a (kinesin family member 2A) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Kif2a
Name: kinesin family member 2A
RGD ID: 70974
Description: Exhibits protein kinase binding activity. Predicted to be involved in microtubule-based movement; mitotic spindle assembly; and regulation of cell migration. Predicted to colocalize with spindle microtubule and spindle pole. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in complex cortical dysplasia with other brain malformations 3. Orthologous to human KIF2A (kinesin family member 2A); INTERACTS WITH acrylamide; ammonium chloride; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: Kif2; kinesin heavy chain family, member 2; kinesin heavy chain member 2; kinesin heavy chain member 2A; kinesin-2; kinesin-like protein KIF2A
