Previous Symbols for KIF23 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of kinesin-like protein family. This family includes microtubule-dependent molecular motors that transport organelles within cells and move chromosomes during cell division. This protein has been shown to cross-bridge antiparallel microtubules and drive microtubule movement in vitro. Alternate splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants.

GeneCards Summary for KIF23 Gene
KIF23 (Kinesin Family Member 23) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KIF23 include dyserythropoietic anemia, congenital, type iii. Among its related pathways are Class I MHC mediated antigen processing and presentation and Cell Cycle, Mitotic. GO annotations related to this gene include microtubule binding and microtubule motor activity. An important paralog of this gene is KIF20B.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KIF23 Gene
Component of the centralspindlin complex that serves as a microtubule-dependent and Rho-mediated signaling required for the myosin contractile ring formation during the cell cycle cytokinesis. Essential for cytokinesis in Rho-mediated signaling. Required for the localization of ECT2 to the central spindle. Plus-end-directed motor enzyme that moves antiparallel microtubules in vitro.
