Kinesin family member 22, also known as KIF22, is a human gene.cite web | title = Entrez Gene: KIF22 kinesin family member 22| url =| accessdate = ]

section_title =
summary_text = The protein encoded by this gene is a member of kinesin-like protein family. This family of proteins are microtubule-dependent molecular motors that transport organelles within cells and move chromosomes during cell division. The C-terminal half of this protein has been shown to bind DNA. Studies with the Xenopus homolog suggests its essential role in metaphase chromosome alignment and maintenance.cite web | title = Entrez Gene: KIF22 kinesin family member 22| url =| accessdate = ]
