Gene: Kif5b (kinesin family member 5B) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Kif5b
Name: kinesin family member 5B
RGD ID: 621559
Description: Enables JUN kinase binding activity; microtubule lateral binding activity; and microtubule motor activity. Involved in axonal transport; hippocampus development; and positive regulation of transport. Located in axonal growth cone; microtubule cytoskeleton; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Is active in postsynaptic cytosol. Orthologous to human KIF5B (kinesin family member 5B); PARTICIPATES IN insulin responsive facilitative sugar transporter mediated glucose transport pathway; mitochondria transport pathway; N-cadherin signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,4-dinitrotoluene; 2,6-dinitrotoluene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Previously known as: conventional kinesin heavy chain; Khc; kinesin-1 heavy chain; ubiquitous kinesin heavy chain; UKHC
