FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] The protein encoded by this gene acts as a heterodimer with kinesin family member 3A to aid in chromosome movement during mitosis and meiosis. The encoded protein is a plus end-directed microtubule motor and can interact with the SMC3 subunit of the cohesin complex. In addition, the encoded protein may be involved in the intracellular movement of membranous organelles. This protein and kinesin family member 3A form the kinesin II subfamily of the kinesin superfamily. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygoous for a targeted null mutation are growth retarded and display neural tube defects, incomplete embryo turning, randomized left-right assymetry, pericardial edema, and die during the midgestational period. [provided by MGI curators]
