    Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology, Washington University School of Medicine, St Louis, Missouri 63110, USA
    J Neurosci 24:3907-16. 2004
    ..These mutants provide a model to assess whether defects in transport of specific cargo mediate neuronal dysfunction...
  2. pmc The Caenorhabditis elegans Kinesin-3 motor UNC-104/KIF1A is degraded upon loss of specific binding to cargo
    Jitendra Kumar
    National Centre for Biological Sciences, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Bangalore, India
    PLoS Genet 6:e1001200. 2010
    ..These data show that inability to bind cargo can target motors for degradation. In view of the observed degradation of the motor in synaptic regions, this further suggests that UNC-104 may get degraded at synapses upon release of cargo...
