  • Function
    Plus end-directed microtubule-dependent motor protein involved in intracellular transport and regulating various processes such as mannose-6-phosphate receptor (M6PR) transport to the plasma membrane, endosomal sorting during melanosome biogenesis and cytokinesis. Mediates the transport of M6PR-containing vesicles from trans-Golgi network to the plasma membrane via direct interaction with the AP-1 complex. During melanosome maturation, required for delivering melanogenic enzymes from recycling endosomes to nascent melanosomes by creating peripheral recycling endosomal subdomains in melanocytes. Also required for the abcission step in cytokinesis: mediates translocation of ZFYVE26, and possibly TTC19, to the midbody during cytokinesis.
  • Tissue specificity
    Widely expressed, with highest levels in heart, brain and skeletal muscle.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the kinesin-like protein family.
    Contains 1 FHA domain.
    Contains 1 kinesin-motor domain.
  • Developmental stage
    Expressed at very low level in most fetal tissues, but at higher levels in skeletal muscle and lung.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > centrosome. Midbody. Endosome membrane. Golgi apparatus membrane. Recruited to the midbody during cytokinesis.
