Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
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 the cytoplasm; neuronal cell body; and plasma membrane bounded cell projection part. 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).
