Cytoplasmic dynein is a microtubule-associated motor protein (Hughes et al., 1995 [PubMed 7738094]). See DYNC1H1 (MIM 600112) for general information about dyneins.[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
GeneCards Summary for DYNC1LI2 Gene
DYNC1LI2 (Dynein, Cytoplasmic 1, Light Intermediate Chain 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Class I MHC mediated antigen processing and presentation and Salmonella infection (KEGG). GO annotations related to this gene include microtubule motor activity. An important paralog of this gene is DYNC1LI1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DYNC1LI2 Gene
Acts as one of several non-catalytic accessory components of the cytoplasmic dynein 1 complex that are thought to be involved in linking dynein to cargos and to adapter proteins that regulate dynein function. Cytoplasmic dynein 1 acts as a motor for the intracellular retrograde motility of vesicles and organelles along microtubules. May play a role in binding dynein to membranous organelles or chromosomes
