Summaries for KIF1A Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for KIF1A Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the kinesin family and functions as an anterograde motor protein that transports membranous organelles along axonal microtubules. Mutations at this locus have been associated with spastic paraplegia-30 and hereditary sensory neuropathy IIC. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2012]

Disorders for KIF1A Gene

(3) OMIM Diseases for KIF1A Gene (601255)


  • Spastic paraplegia 30, autosomal recessive (SPG30) [MIM:610357]: A form of spastic paraplegia, a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a slow, gradual, progressive weakness and spasticity of the lower limbs. Rate of progression and the severity of symptoms are quite variable. Initial symptoms may include difficulty with balance, weakness and stiffness in the legs, muscle spasms, and dragging the toes when walking. In some forms of the disorder, bladder symptoms (such as incontinence) may appear, or the weakness and stiffness may spread to other parts of the body. SPG30 is characterized by onset in the first or second decades of unsteady spastic gait and hyperreflexia of the lower limbs. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21487076}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Neuropathy, hereditary sensory, 2C (HSN2C) [MIM:614213]: A neurodegenerative disorder characterized by onset in the first decade of progressive distal sensory loss leading to ulceration and amputation of the fingers and toes. Affected individuals also develop distal muscle weakness, primarily affecting the lower limbs. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21820098}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Mental retardation, autosomal dominant 9 (MRD9) [MIM:614255]: A disorder characterized by significantly below average general intellectual functioning associated with impairments in adaptive behavior and manifested during the developmental period. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21376300}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
