Characterizing KIF16B in neurons reveals a novel intramolecular "stalk inhibition" mechanism that regulates its capacity to potentiate the selective somatodendritic localization of early endosomes.


An organelle's subcellular localization is closely related to its function. Early endosomes require localization to somatodendritic regions in neurons to enable neuronal morphogenesis, polarized sorting, and signal transduction. However, it is not known how the somatodendritic localization of early endosomes is achieved. Here, we show that the kinesin… (More)
