Entrez Gene Summary for KIF21A Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the KIF4 subfamily of kinesin-like motor proteins. The encoded protein is characterized by an N-terminal motor domain a coiled-coil stalk domain and a C-terminal WD-40 repeat domain. This protein may be involved in microtubule dependent transport. Mutations in this gene are the cause of congenital fibrosis of extraocular muscles-1. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.[provided by RefSeq, Mar 2010]

GeneCards Summary for KIF21A Gene

KIF21A (Kinesin Family Member 21A) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KIF21A include fibrosis of extraocular muscles, congenital, 1 and congenital fibrosis of the extraocular muscles. Among its related pathways are Reelin Pathway (Cajal-Retzius cells). GO annotations related to this gene include microtubule binding and microtubule motor activity. An important paralog of this gene is KIF5C.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KIF21A Gene

  • Microtubule-binding motor protein probably involved in neuronal axonal transport. In vitro, has a plus-end directed motor activity (By similarity).

KI21A_HUMAN
  • Fibrosis of extraocular muscles, congenital, 1 (CFEOM1) [MIM:135700]: A congenital ocular motility disorder marked by restrictive ophthalmoplegia affecting extraocular muscles innervated by the oculomotor and/or trochlear nerves. It is clinically characterized by anchoring of the eyes in downward gaze, ptosis, and backward tilt of the head. Patients affected by congenital fibrosis of extraocular muscles type 1 show an absence of the superior division of the oculomotor nerve (cranial nerve III) and corresponding oculomotor subnuclei. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:14595441, ECO:0000269 PubMed:16157808}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
