Predicted to have tubulin binding activity. Involved in axo-dendritic transport and stress granule disassembly. Localizes to several cellular components, including axon; cytoskeleton; and cytosol. Is expressed in gut; nervous system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease and relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. Orthologous to human KLC1 (kinesin light chain 1).
