GeneCards Summary for KIF26B Gene

KIF26B (Kinesin Family Member 26B) 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 KIF26A.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KIF26B Gene

  • Essential for embryonic kidney development. Plays an important role in the compact adhesion between mesenchymal cells adjacent to the ureteric buds, possibly by interacting with MYH10. This could lead to the establishment of the basolateral integrity of the mesenchyme and the polarized expression of ITGA8, which maintains the GDNF expression required for further ureteric bud attraction. Although it seems to lack ATPase activity it is constitutively associated with microtubules (By similarity).

Post-translational modifications for KIF26B Gene

  • Phosphorylation at Thr-1855 and Ser-1958 by CDKs, mainly CDK2 and CDK5, enhances the interaction with NEDD4, polyubiquitination, and subsequent proteasomal degradation. Phosphorylation occurs upon loss of interaction with microtubules (By similarity).
  • Polyubiquitinated by NEDD4, resulting in proteasomal degradation.
