KIFC3 belongs to the large superfamily of kinesins, molecular motors that use the energy of ATP hydrolysis to translocate cargoes along microtubules. Members share extensive homology within a globular domain containing the microtubule- and ATP-binding sites and have a coiled-coil stalk domain that mediates oligomerization. Different kinesin family members participate in specific and diverse motile processes, such as cell division, organelle transport, and nuclear movement (Hoang et al., 1998 ).
