Background of KIF13A antibody
The kinesin superfamily of proteins consists of over forty KIF motor proteins that function in intracellular transport along microtubules. Kinesin activity has been linked to various cellular functions such as vesicle transport, mitotic spindle formation, chromosome segregation, and cytokinesis. Structurally, all kinesins contain a motor domain with microtubule and nucleotide binding sites that utilize ATP to target cargo along microtubule filaments. KIF13A is reported to transport the mannose-6-phosphate receptor from the trans-golgi network to the plasma membrane by associating with beta 1-adaptin in the AP-1 adaptor complex. Alternate names for KIF13A include kinesin family member 13A, kinesin-like protein KIF13A, kinesin-like protein RBKIN, RBKIN, FLJ27232, and bA500C11.2.
