Kinesin light chain 2

Gene

KLC2

Organism
Homo sapiens (Human)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: Annotation score: 5 out of 5-Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Kinesin is a microtubule-associated force-producing protein that may play a role in organelle transport. The light chain may function in coupling of cargo to the heavy chain or in the modulation of its ATPase activity (By similarity).By similarity

Involvement in diseasei

Spastic paraplegia, optic atrophy, and neuropathy (SPOAN)1 Publication
The gene represented in this entry is involved in disease pathogenesis. The disease is caused by a homozygous deletion in the non-coding region of the KLC2 gene.1 Publication
Disease descriptionA form of spastic paraplegia, a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a slow, gradual, progressive weakness and spasticity of the lower limbs. Rate of progression and the severity of symptoms are quite variable. Initial symptoms may include difficulty with balance, weakness and stiffness in the legs, muscle spasms, and dragging the toes when walking. In some forms of the disorder, bladder symptoms (such as incontinence) may appear, or the weakness and stiffness may spread to other parts of the body. SPOAN is characterized by spastic paraplegia with progressive joint contractures and spine deformities, loss of independent ambulation by age 10 years, sub-normal vision secondary to congenital optic atrophy, and neuropathy. Inheritance is autosomal recessive.

100%UniRef100 combines identical sequences and sub-fragments with 11 or more residues from any organism into one UniRef entry.
90%UniRef90 is built by clustering UniRef100 sequences that have at least 90% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence (a.k.a seed sequence).
50%UniRef50 is built by clustering UniRef90 seed sequences that have at least 50% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence in the cluster.
