The Molecular Motor KIF1A Transports the TrkA Neurotrophin Receptor and Is Essential for Sensory Neuron Survival and Function
KIF1A is a major axonal transport motor protein, but its functional significance remains elusive. Here we show that KIF1A-haploinsufficient mice developed sensory neuropathy. We found progressive… Expand
KIF26A Is an Unconventional Kinesin and Regulates GDNF-Ret Signaling in Enteric Neuronal Development
The kinesin superfamily proteins (KIFs) are motor proteins that transport organelles and protein complexes in a microtubule- and ATP-dependent manner. We identified KIF26A as a new member of the… Expand

Kinesin super family protein 2A (KIF2A), an ATP-dependent microtubule (MT) destabilizer, regulates cell migration, axon elongation, and pruning in the developing nervous system. KIF2A mutations have… Expand
The Atypical Kinesin KIF26A Facilitates Termination of Nociceptive Responses by Sequestering Focal Adhesion Kinase.
Kinesin superfamily proteins (KIFs) are molecular motors that typically alter the subcellular localization of their cargos. However, the atypical kinesin KIF26A does not serve as a motor but can bind… Expand
