Previous Symbols for KIF24 Gene
Kinesins, such as KIF24, are microtubule-dependent ATPases that function as molecular motors. They play important roles in intracellular vesicle transport and cell division (summary by Venturelli et al., 2010 [PubMed 20670673]).[supplied by OMIM, Feb 2011]
GeneCards Summary for KIF24 Gene
KIF24 (Kinesin Family Member 24) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include microtubule binding and microtubule motor activity. An important paralog of this gene is KIF2B.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KIF24 Gene
Microtubule-dependent motor protein that acts as a negative regulator of ciliogenesis by mediating recruitment of CCP110 to mother centriole in cycling cells, leading to restrict nucleation of cilia at centrioles. Mediates depolymerization of microtubules of centriolar origin, possibly to suppress aberrant cilia formation.
