ⓘ Kinesin family member 11

Kinesin-5 is a molecular motor protein that is essential in mitosis. Kinesin-5 proteins are members of kinesin superfamily, which are nanomotors that move along microtubule tracks in the cell. Named from studies in the early days of discovery, it is also known as kinesin family member 11, encoded by the KIF11 gene, or as BimC, Eg5 or N-2, based on the founding members of this kinesin family. The term kinesin-5 has been recommended based on a standardized nomenclature adopted by the scientific community.

Currently, there are more than 70 different eukaryotic kinesin-5 proteins, identified according to the similarity of sequences. Members of this family of proteins known to be involved in various kinds of spindle dynamics and is essential for mitosis. The function of this gene product includes chromosome positioning, centrosome separation and establishing a bipolar spindle during mitosis of cells. Human kinesin-5 protein is also actively exploring its role in mitosis and its potential as a therapeutic target for cancer treatment.
