KIF2A belongs to the kinesin-like protein family, MCAK/KIF2 subfamily. It contains 1 kinesin-motor domain. KIF2A plus end-directed microtubule-dependent motor required for normal brain development. It may regulate microtubule dynamics during axonal growth. KIF2A is implicated in formation of bipolar mitotic spindles. It has microtubule depolymerization activity. Hela cells lacking KIF2A show asymmetric or monopolar mitotic spindles. Osteosarcoma cells (U2OS) lacking KIF2A or KIF2B show disorganised or monopolar mitotic spindles.Kinesins, such as KIF2, are microtubule-associated motor proteins.
