Summaries for KIF12 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for KIF12 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the kinesin superfamily of microtubule-associated molecular motors with functions related to the microtubule cytosekelton. Members of this superfamily play important roles in intracellular transport and cell division. A similar protein in mouse functions in the beta cell antioxidant signaling cascade, acting as a scaffold for the transcription factor specificity protein 1 (Sp1). Mice that lack this gene exhibit beta cell oxidative stress resulting in hypoinsulinemic glucose intolerance. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2016]
