Background

BACKGROUND:KIF5 Antibody: The kinesin superfamily proteins (KIFs) are microtubule-dependent motors that slide along microtubules and transport cellular organelles and mRNA to different parts of the cell. In neurons, KIF5 performs this role in an anterograde fashion from the neuronal cell body to axonal or dendritic terminals. KIF5 was initially differentiated from the ubiquitously expressed kinesin as being highly enriched in subsets of neurons and selectively concentrated in the cell body. Mutations in one of the three isoforms of KIF5 (KIF5A) are thought to be involved in hereditary spastic paraplegias.
