KLC2 iso2 Kinesin is a microtubule-associated force-producing protein that may play a role in organelle transport. The light chain may function in coupling of cargo to the heavy chain or in the modulation of its ATPase activity. Belongs to the kinesin light chain family. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
