Summation

Chromokinesins consist of the kinesin-4 and kinesin-10 families.They act in various steps of mitosis, including chromosome condensation, metaphase alignment, chromosome segregation and cytokinesis (Mazumdar & Misteli 2005). Both families consist of homodimeric microtubule-based plus-end directed motor proteins (Sekine et al. 1994, Yajima et al. 2003).
