25884224 Confocal microscopy shows that cells expressing SUMO-resistant Kif18A display a compromised dissociation of BubR1 from kinetochores after anaphase onset.
25431949 a biomarker for hepatocellular carcinoma diagnosis and an independent predictor of overall survival
25281536 that the human mitotic kinesin-8, KIF18A, directly interacts with PP1gamma through a conserved RVxF motif
25208566 data support a model in which microtubule-attenuating kinesins are molecularly "tuned" to control the dynamics of specific subsets of spindle microtubules
25048371 Cdk1-mediated inhibitory phosphorylation of Kif18A promotes chromosome oscillations in early metaphase. PP1 induces metaphase plate thinning by directly dephosphorylating Kif18A.
23746518 the motion of yeast (Kip3) and human (Kif18A) kinesin-8s
23288039 Mechanisms controlling the temporal degradation of Nek2A and Kif18A by the APC/C-Cdc20 complex.
22595673 Kif18A (kinesin-8) attenuates centromere movement by directly promoting microtubule pausing in a concentration- dependent manner.
22104080 there is a mutual regulation of kinetochore MT plus-end dynamics and Kif18A accumulation, which may contribute to the highly regulated and ordered changes in kinetochore spindle microtubule dynamics during chromosome congression and oscillation
21885282 Kif18A controls spindle length independently of its role in chromosome positioning. This is mediated by an ATP-independent spindle microtubule (MT) binding site at C-terminal end of the Kif18A tail that has a strong affinity for MTs in vitro and in cells.
21884977 The heightened processivity of Kif18A, conferred by its tail domain, thus promotes concentration of Kif18A at K-MT plus ends, where it suppresses their dynamics to control chromosome movements.
21231887 Kinesin (KIF18A) can be potentially used as a blood biomarker to identify asbestosis patients at risk of developing lung cancer.

20153196 The kinesin-8 Kif18A dampens microtubule plus-end dynamics.
19625775 Studies strongly suggest that chromosome congression defects as the result of KIF18A depletion is at least in part mediated through destabilizing kinetochore CENP-E.
18680169 The current study sheds light on MS-KIF18A a microtubule-dependent kinesin and adds insights on the post-translational modifications that potentially control the protein cellular distribution and its co-association with cytoskeletal proteins.
18267093 Kif18A regulates kinetochore microtubule dynamics to control mitotic chromosome positioning.
17346968 Kif18A is a dual-functional kinesin and a key component of chromosome congression.
