A rice class-XIV kinesin enters the nucleus in response to cold

Xiaolu Xu, Wilhelm J. Walter, Qiong Liu, Isabel MacHens & Peter Nick
Higher plants possess a large number of kinesins, but lack the minus-end directed dynein motors. However, the kinesin class XIV has strongly expanded, and minus-end directed motors from this class may have taken over functions of cytoplasmic dyneins. In this study, we address the functional aspects of a novel rice homologue of the Arabidopsis class-XIV kinesins ATK1 and ATK5. Since a loss-of-function rice mutant of this kinesin is not viable, the function was studied in...
