  • mouse mutants lacking the KIF3A showed situs inversus and embryonic ciliary morphogenesis defects
  • mouse embryos lacking KIF3A die at 10 days postcoitum, exhibit randomized establishment of L-R asymmetry and display numerous structural abnormalities
  • complete loss of Kif3a led to large accumulations of opsin, arrestin and membranes within the photoreceptor inner segment and caused apoptotic photoreceptor cell death
  • Kif3a mutant zebrafish exhibited curved body axes and kidney cysts
