DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Kinesin-like protein KIF20A; AltName: Full=GG10_2; AltName: Full=Mitotic kinesin-like protein 2; Short=MKlp2; AltName: Full=Rab6-interacting kinesin-like protein; AltName: Full=Rabkinesin-6;
FUNCTION: Mitotic kinesin required for chromosome passenger complex (CPC)-mediated cytokinesis. Following phosphorylation by PLK1, involved in recruitment of PLK1 to the central spindle. Interacts with guanosine triphosphate (GTP)-bound forms of RAB6A and RAB6B. May act as a motor required for the retrograde RAB6 regulated transport of Golgi membranes and associated vesicles along microtubules. Has a microtubule plus end-directed motility.
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Golgi apparatus (By similarity). Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, spindle.
PTM: Phosphorylated by PLK1 at Ser-528 during mitosis, creating a docking site for PLK1 and recruiting PLK1 at central spindle.
SIMILARITY: Belongs to the kinesin-like protein family.
SIMILARITY: Contains 1 kinesin-motor domain.

ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on O95235
The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.

-  Orthologous Genes in Other Species
  Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
