FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] The protein encoded by this gene is a kinesin heavy chain subunit involved in the transport of cargo within the central nervous system. The encoded protein, which acts as a tetramer by associating with another heavy chain and two light chains, interacts with protein kinase CK2. Mutations in this gene have been associated with complex cortical dysplasia with other brain malformations-2. Two transcript variants, one protein-coding and the other non-protein coding, have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2015]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homezygous for disruptions in this gene are viable, fertile, and of normal size. The brain is normal but slightly reduced in size with decreased numbers of motor neurons an somewhat more sensory nerves than normal. [provided by MGI curators]
