Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.0)
Enables microtubule binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including interkinetic nuclear migration; regulation of dendritic spine morphogenesis; and transport along microtubule. Located in neuron projection and neuronal cell body. Is expressed in nervous system; sensory organ; testis; and urinary system. Used to study hereditary spastic paraplegia 30. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in NESCAV syndrome; hereditary sensory neuropathy; hereditary sensory neuropathy type 2C; hereditary spastic paraplegia; and hereditary spastic paraplegia 30. Orthologous to human KIF1A (kinesin family member 1A).
