Name  Dynein light chain, type 1/2 Short Name  Dynein_light_chain_typ-1/2
Type  Family Description  Dynein is a multisubunit microtubule-dependent motor enzyme that acts as the force generating protein of eukaryotic cilia and flagella. The cytoplasmic isoform of dynein acts as a motor for the intracellular retrograde motility of vesicles and organelles along microtubules. Dynein is composed of a number of ATP-binding large subunits (see ), intermediate size subunits and small subunits. Among the small subunits, there is a family of highly conserved proteins which make up this family [, ].Both type 1 (DLC1) and 2 (DLC2) dynein light chains have a similar two-layer alpha-beta core structure consisting of beta-alpha(2)-beta-X-beta(2) [, ].
