Drosophila melanogaster

Key to labels used in the table: The entries shown below are likely to comprise the complete complement of kinesin proteins in D. melanogaster, based on DNA sequence analysis of its genome. Entries for which genomic sequence is available are indicated by the label GUncertain indicates that the entry may be a kinesin motor domain homologue, but it lacks crucial amino acid residues that would make it a functional kinesin. The new family names are shown in the table with the former family names in parentheses.
