GeneCards Summary for KIF5C Gene

KIF5C (Kinesin Family Member 5C) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KIF5C include cortical dysplasia, complex, with other brain malformations 2 and cortical dysplasia, complex, with other brain malformations. Among its related pathways are Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein and Circadian entrainment. GO annotations related to this gene include microtubule binding and microtubule motor activity. An important paralog of this gene is KIF3C.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KIF5C Gene

  • Mediates dendritic trafficking of mRNAs (By similarity). Kinesin is a microtubule-associated force-producing protein that may play a role in organelle transport.
