gene: unc-104 [Browse genome (BioProject PRJNA13758)] [Legacy GBrowse] [Search on AGR]
Enables cytoskeletal protein binding activity; phosphatidylinositol phosphate binding activity; and plus-end-directed microtubule motor activity. Involved in several processes, including chemical synaptic transmission; regulation of growth; and regulation of intracellular transport. Located in axon; presynapse; and somatodendritic compartment. Expressed in epithelial cell; muscle cell; neurons; and somatic nervous system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including NESCAV syndrome; hereditary spastic paraplegia 30; and neuropathy (multiple). Is an ortholog of human KIF1A (kinesin family member 1A).
