GeneCards Summary for DYNLL2 Gene
DYNLL2 (Dynein Light Chain LC8-Type 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are COPI-independent Golgi-to-ER retrograde traffic and Transport to the Golgi and subsequent modification. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include motor activity and cytoskeletal protein binding. An important paralog of this gene is DYNLL1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DYNLL2 Gene
Acts as one of several non-catalytic accessory components of the cytoplasmic dynein 1 complex that are thought to be involved in linking dynein to cargos and to adapter proteins that regulate dynein function. Cytoplasmic dynein 1 acts as a motor for the intracellular retrograde motility of vesicles and organelles along microtubules. May play a role in changing or maintaining the spatial distribution of cytoskeletal structures (By similarity).
