Dyneins are a group of microtubule-activated ATPases that function as molecular motors. They are divided into two subgroups of axonemal and cytoplasmic dyneins. The cytoplasmic dyneins function in intracellular motility, including retrograde axonal transport, protein sorting, organelle movement, and spindle dynamics. Molecules of conventional cytoplasmic dynein are comprised of 2 heavy chain polypeptides and a number of intermediate and light chains.This gene encodes a member of the cytoplasmic dynein heavy chain family.

GeneCards Summary for DYNC1H1 Gene
DYNC1H1 (Dynein Cytoplasmic 1 Heavy Chain 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DYNC1H1 include Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Lower Extremity-Predominant 1, Ad and Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease, Axonal, Type 20. Among its related pathways are Regulation of PLK1 Activity at G2/M Transition and Innate Immune System. GO annotations related to this gene include poly(A) RNA binding and microtubule motor activity. An important paralog of this gene is DNAH2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DYNC1H1 Gene
Cytoplasmic dynein 1 acts as a motor for the intracellular retrograde motility of vesicles and organelles along microtubules. Dynein has ATPase activity; the force-producing power stroke is thought to occur on release of ADP.
