Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have ATP-dependent microtubule motor activity, plus-end-directed; apolipoprotein receptor binding activity; and microtubule binding activity. Involved in mRNA transport and motor neuron axon guidance. Localizes to several cellular components, including axonal growth cone; ciliary rootlet; and neuronal cell body. Is expressed in several structures, including genitourinary system; nervous system; nose; and retina. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in complex cortical dysplasia with other brain malformations 2 and schizophrenia. Orthologous to human KIF5C (kinesin family member 5C).
