Psychiatry related information on ATK5

  • This +TIP activity is conferred by regions outside of the C-terminal motor domain, which reveals the presence of independent plus-end tracking and minus-end motor activities within ATK5 [1].

High impact information on ATK5


Anatomical context of ATK5

  • Based on these data, we propose a model in which ATK5 uses plus-end tracking to reach spindle midzones, where it then organizes microtubules via minus-end-directed motor activity [1].
