Kinesin family member 4A

This gene encodes a member of the kinesin 4 subfamily of kinesin related proteins. The encoded protein is an ATP dependent microtubule-based motor protein that is involved in the intracellular transport of membranous organelles. This protein also associates with condensed chromosome arms and may be involved in maintaining chromosome integrity during mitosis. This protein may also be involved in the organization of the central spindle prior to cytokinesis. A pseudogene of this gene is found on chromosome X.[provided by RefSeq, Mar 2010] (from NCBI)

The lethal response to Cdk1 inhibition depends on sister chromatid alignment errors generated by KIF4 and isoform 1 of PRC1.
Wolthuis et al., Amsterdam, Netherlands. In Sci Rep, 2014

Stumpff et al., Burlington, United States. In Mol Biol Cell, 2014
Kif18A (kinesin-8) localizes to the plus ends of the relatively slowly growing kinetochore fibers (K-fibers) and attenuates their dynamics, whereas Kif4A (kinesin-4) localizes to mitotic chromatin and suppresses the growth of highly dynamic, nonkinetochore microtubules.
The role of Kif4A in doxorubicin-induced apoptosis in breast cancer cells.
Jiang et al., Changzhou, China. In Mol Cells, 2014
This study was to investigate the mechanism and role of Kif4A in doxorubicin-induced apoptosis in breast cancer.
Kinesin KIF4A transports integrin β1 in developing axons of cortical neurons.
Fawcett et al., Córdoba, Argentina. In Mol Cell Neurosci, 2014
Ribosomal protein and L1 show selective axonal transport through association with kinesin kif4A; we have therefore examined the hypothesis that integrin transport might also be in association with kif4A.

Mitchison et al., Boston, United States. In Science, 2014
The CPC was transported to overlap zones, which required two motor proteins, Kif4A and a Kif20A paralog.

MKI67, CCNB1, ASPM, SGOL1, DLGAP5, CENPF, BUB1, KIF23, KIF18a, KIF11, KIF14, KIF4, NUF2, KIF1, AE2FB, TOP2A, NCAPG, TTK, CDC20, and AURKB), which could account for the ensuing proliferation arrest.

Univariate assessment revealed higher expression of ITGA5, SEMA3A, KIF4A, IL20RB, SLC20A1, CDC45, PXN, SSX3 and TMEM26 was correlated with shorter survival while B3GNT1, NOSTRIN and CADPS down-regulation was associated with poor outcome.

Alzheimer Aβ disrupts the mitotic spindle and directly inhibits mitotic microtubule motors.
Potter et al., Tampa, United States. In Cell Cycle, 2011
Abeta impairs the assembly and maintenance of the mitotic spindle. Mechanistically, these defects result from Abeta's inhibition of mitotic motor kinesins, including Eg5, KIF4A and MCAK.
