Summaries for KIF1C Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for KIF1C Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the kinesin-like protein family. The family members are microtubule-dependent molecular motors that transport organelles within cells and move chromosomes during cell division. Mutations in this gene are a cause of spastic ataxia 2, autosomal recessive. [provided by RefSeq, May 2014]

GeneCards Summary for KIF1C Gene

KIF1C (Kinesin Family Member 1C) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KIF1C include Spastic Ataxia 2, Autosomal Recessive and Spastic Ataxia 2. Among its related pathways are Reelin Pathway (Cajal-Retzius cells) and Golgi-to-ER retrograde transport. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include microtubule binding. An important paralog of this gene is KIF1A.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KIF1C Gene

  • Motor required for the retrograde transport of Golgi vesicles to the endoplasmic reticulum. Has a microtubule plus end-directed motility.
