Summaries for KIF21B Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for KIF21B Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the kinesin superfamily. Kinesins are ATP-dependent microtubule-based motor proteins that are involved in the intracellular transport of membranous organelles. Single nucleotide polymorphisms in this gene are associated with inflammatory bowel disease and multiple sclerosis. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2011]

GeneCards Summary for KIF21B Gene

KIF21B (Kinesin Family Member 21B) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KIF21B include orchitis.
