Dynein 1 light intermediate chain (IPR008467)

Short name: Dynein1_light_intermed_chain

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


This family consists of several eukaryotic dynein light intermediate chain proteins. The light intermediate chains (LICs) of cytoplasmic dynein consist of multiple isoforms, which undergo post-translational modification to produce a large number of species. This entry represents the dynein 1 light intermediate chains. DLIC1 is known to be involved in assembly, organisation, and function of centrosomes and mitotic spindles when bound to pericentrin.
