FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] KIF18A is a member of the kinesin superfamily of microtubule-associated molecular motors (see MIM 148760) that use hydrolysis of ATP to produce force and movement along microtubules (Luboshits and Benayahu, 2005 [PubMed 15878648]).[supplied by OMIM, Aug 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for loss of function alleles exhibit reduced female fertility and male infertility due to primordial germ cell depletion. The sterility phenotype is incompletely penetrant, has variable expressivity, and is modulated by strain background. [provided by MGI curators]
