This gene encodes a member of the kinesin family of proteins. Members of this family are part of a multisubunit complex that functions as a microtubule motor in intracellular organelle transport. Mutations in this gene cause autosomal dominant spastic paraplegia 10. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for KIF5A Gene
KIF5A (Kinesin Family Member 5A) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KIF5A include spastic paraplegia 10, autosomal dominant and autosomal dominant charcot-marie-tooth disease type 2 due to kif5a mutation. Among its related pathways are Circadian entrainment and Endocytosis. GO annotations related to this gene include ATPase activity and microtubule motor activity. An important paralog of this gene is KIF5C.
