This gene encodes a 50-kD subunit of dynactin, amacromolecular complex consisting of 10-11 subunits ranging in sizefrom 22 to 150 kD. Dynactin binds to both microtubules andcytoplasmic dynein. It is involved in a diverse array of cellularfunctions, including ER-to-Golgi transport, the centripetalmovement of lysosomes and endosomes, spindle formation, chromosomemovement, nuclear positioning, and axonogenesis. This subunit ispresent in 4-5 copies per dynactin molecule. It contains threeshort alpha-helical coiled-coil domains that may mediateassociation with self or other dynactin subunits. It may interactdirectly with the largest subunit (p150) of dynactin and may affixp150 in place.
