Dynactin subunit 3 (IPR009991)

Short name: DCTN3

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

None.

Family relationships

None.

Description

DCTN3 is the smallest subunit of dynactin, a complex that binds to cytoplasmic dynein and is a required activator for cytoplasmic dynein-mediated vesicular transport. Dynactin localises to the cleavage furrow and to the midbodies of dividing cells, suggesting that it may function in cytokinesis [PMID: 9722614].
