Entrez Gene Summary for KIF1C Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the kinesin-like protein family. The family members are microtubule-dependent molecular motors that transport organelles within cells and move chromosomes during cell division. Mutations in this gene are a cause of spastic ataxia 2, autosomal recessive. [provided by RefSeq, May 2014]

GeneCards Summary for KIF1C Gene

KIF1C (Kinesin Family Member 1C) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KIF1C include spastic ataxia 2, autosomal recessive and autosomal recessive spastic paraplegia type 58. Among its related pathways are Reelin Pathway (Cajal-Retzius cells). GO annotations related to this gene include microtubule binding and motor activity. An important paralog of this gene is KIF14.
