This gene encodes a motor protein that belongs to the kinesin-like protein family. Members of this protein family are known to be involved in various kinds of spindle dynamics. The function of this gene product includes chromosome positioning, centrosome separation and establishing a bipolar spindle during cell mitosis. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for KIF11 Gene
KIF11 (Kinesin Family Member 11) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KIF11 include Microcephaly With Or Without Chorioretinopathy, Lymphedema, Or Mental Retardation and Syndromic Rod-Cone Dystrophy. Among its related pathways are Golgi-to-ER retrograde transport and Mitotic Roles of Polo Like Kinases. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include protein kinase binding. An important paralog of this gene is KIF15.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for KIF11 Gene
Motor protein required for establishing a bipolar spindle during mitosis (PubMed:19001501). Required in non-mitotic cells for transport of secretory proteins from the Golgi complex to the cell surface (PubMed:23857769).
Kinesin superfamily proteins (KIFs) are motor proteins that convert chemical energy into mechanical force, typically by hydrolysis of ATP. They act upon microtubules to move vesicles and organelles from the cell centre to the periphery and cause the beating of flagella and cilia.
