KIF13B

A gene on chromosome  8p12 that encodes a kinesin-like motor protein, which may be involved in reorganising the cortical cytoskeleton. KIF13B may be functionally important for intracellular trafficking of membrane-associated guanylate kinases (MAGUKs) and associated protein complexes.

The new research shows that CARD11 is under the control of GAKIN, another protein that supervises the directives given to each white blood cell.
Pomerantz's group discovered that the more GAKIN protein they added to the cells, the less the cells glowed, meaning that GAKIN represses these genes' activation.
