Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Enables several functions, including ATP binding activity; ATP hydrolysis activity; and plus-end-directed microtubule motor activity. Involved in several processes, including brain development; negative regulation of neuron apoptotic process; and regulation of myelination. Predicted to be located in Flemming body; cytosol; and spindle midzone. Predicted to be part of kinesin complex. Predicted to be active in microtubule. Predicted to colocalize with plasma membrane. Is expressed in retina. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Meckel syndrome and primary autosomal recessive microcephaly. Orthologous to human KIF14 (kinesin family member 14).
