26707290 KIF2A may be important in glioma progression.

24950762 KIF2A may play an important role in breast cancer progression and is potentially a novel predictive and prognostic marker for breast cancer.
24248467 Silencing Kif2a induces apoptosis and decreases the mRNA and protein level of PI3K, Akt and Bcell lymphoma 2 (Bcl2) in Tca8113 cells.
24240690 Ras regulates KIF2A to control cell migration pathways in transformed human bronchial epithelial cells.
23960144 The distribution of Kif2A was limited to the distal ends of the central spindle through Aurora B-dependent phosphorylation and exclusion from the spindle midzone.

20379614 Clinical trial of gene-disease association and gene-environment interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
19996280 Data show that 4-oxo-4-HPR inhibited tubulin polymerization and modulated gene expression of spindle aberration associated genes Kif 1C, Kif 2A, Eg5, Tara, tankyrase-1, centractin, and TOGp.
19940135 Targeting of integrin beta1 and kinesin 2alpha by microRNA 183.
19351716 Data show that Kif2a is regulated positively by Plk1 and negatively by Aurora A, and suggest that this antagonistic regulation confers differential stability to microtubules in the spindle versus at the pole versus in the cytosol.
18411309 DDA3 interacts with the MT depolymerase Kif2a in an microtubule-dependent manner and recruits Kif2a to the mitotic spindle and spindle poles.
17538014 These data demonstrate that Kif2b function is required for spindle assembly and chromosome movement and that the microtubule depolymerase activities of Kif2a, Kif2b, and MCAK fulfill distinct functions during mitosis in human cells.
17394562 kinesin-1, but not kinesin-2, contributes to the specific cytoplasmic distribution of three of the four steps of VV morphogenesis tested.
16959419 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
16959419 KIF2 gene, located at 5q12.1, is a potential schizophrenia susceptibility gene
16243029 Spindles in human mitotic cells depleted of the kinesin-13 proteins Kif2a and MCAK lack detectable flux and that such cells frequently fail to segregate all chromosomes appropriately at anaphase.
15302853 Kif2a has a role in bipolar spindle assembly along with MCAK
