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 Tukel Syndrome. Among its related pathways are Vesicle-mediated transport and Factors involved in megakaryocyte development and platelet production. GO annotations related to this gene include ATPase activity and microtubule motor activity. An important paralog of this gene is KIF21A.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KIF21B Gene

  • Plus-end directed microtubule-dependent motor protein which displays processive activity. Is involved in regulation of microtubule dynamics, synapse function and neuronal morphology, including dendritic tree branching and spine formation. Plays a role in lerning and memory. Involved in delivery of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA(A)) receptor to cell surface.
