25961928 we identify KIF20A as a direct transcriptional target of FOXM1, involved in paclitaxel action and resistance
25953216 Kif20a expression was upregulated in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma and pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer compared with normal pancreas. Kif20a silencing resulted in inhibition of proliferation, motility, and invasion of pancreatic cancer cell lines.
25499221 Our results provide insight into the link between regulation of KIF20A-mediated trafficking of IGF2BP3-containing stress granules and modulation of the motility and invasiveness in pancreatic cancers.
24656812 Authors propose that phosphoregulation of MKlp2 by Cdk1/cyclin B1 ensures that activation of MKlp2 kinesin and relocation of the CPC occur at the appropriate time and space for proper mitotic progression and genomic stability.
23750214 targeting Aurora B to the cell cortex (or the equatorial cortex) by MKlp2 is essential for the maintenance of the ingressing furrow for successful cytokinesis
22887948 Used proteomics to identify the genistein-induced protein alterations in gastric cancer cells and found the silencing of KIF20A inhibited cell viability and induced G2/M arrest,& also increased cancer cell sensitivity to genistein inhibition.
22854760 Primary melanomas that were positive for KIF20A showed a significantly greater thickness than those that were negative, and patients with KIF20A+ melanoma tended to develop recurrence earlier.
19303298 Data demonstrate that Mklp2 and the chromosomal passenger complex mutually depend on each other for microtubule midzone localization, and that the association between the CPC and Mklp2 is negatively regulated by Cdk1.
15665285 Collaboration of RAB6KIFL and disc large homologue 5 is likely to be involved in pancreatic cancer.
15263015 Relocation of the Aurora B/INCENP/survivin passenger protein complex requires KIF20A (MKlp2).
12939256 KIF20A (MKlp2) is required for targeting of the polo like kinase 1 during anaphase and telophase cells.
12469216 This gene is not involved in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease.
11060022 KIF20A (Rab6KIFL/MKlp2) is required for cytokinesis
