Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have several functions, including ATP-dependent microtubule motor activity, plus-end-directed; JUN kinase binding activity; and microtubule lateral binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to interferon-gamma; positive regulation of GABAergic synaptic transmission; and stress granule disassembly. Localizes to ciliary rootlet; neuron projection; and phagocytic vesicle. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; nervous system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human KIF5B (kinesin family member 5B).
