Kinesin family member 4A, also known as KIF4A, is a human gene.cite web | title = Entrez Gene: KIF4A kinesin family member 4A| url =| accessdate = ]

section_title =
summary_text = Kinesins, such as KIF4A, are microtubule-based motor proteins that generate directional movement along microtubules. They are involved in many crucial cellular processes, including cell division (Zhu and Jiang, 2005).
