Official Full Name
kinesin family member 17
Background
Kinesin-like protein KIF17 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the KIF17 gene.KIF17 and its close relative, C. elegans OSM-3,are members of the kinesin-2 family of plus-end directed microtubule-based motor proteins.In contrast to heterotrimeric kinesin-2 motors,however, KIF17 and OSM-3 form distinct homodimeric complexes.Homodimeric kinesin-2 has been implicated in the transport of NMDA receptors along dendrites for delivery to the dendritic membrane,whereas both heterotrimeric and homodimeric kinesin-2 motors function cooperatively in anterograde intraflagellar transport (IFT) and cilium biogenesis.
