The C-terminal region of KTN1 (kinectin) binds the cargo-binding tail of the kinesin heavy chain KIF5A and enhances microtubule-stimulated ATPase activity of KIF5A. KIF5A is a part of the conventional kinesin complex, kinesin-1. RHO GTPases, KTN1 and kinesin-1 colocalize on endoplasmic reticulum (ER) membranes and ER-derived vesicles and are thought to be involved in organelle/vesicle motility (Ong et al. 2000, Vignal et al. 2001)
