Kinesin family member 25
kinesin-like 3, KNSL3, kinesin-like protein 3
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the kinesin-like protein family. Protein family members are microtubule-dependent molecular motors that transport organelles within cells and move chromosomes during cell division. However, the particular function of this gene product has not yet been determined. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants which encode products have been described. Other splice variants have been found that lack exon 2 and the initiation codon for translation. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from

Here, we generated a dominant-negative construct encoding green fluorescent protein fused to the stalk-tail region of Xenopus kinesin-like protein 3 (Xklp3), the 95-kD motor subunit of Xenopus kinesin II, and introduced it into melanophores.
