  • Compared to 15 types of axonemal dynein, only two cytoplasmic forms are known.
  • Axonemal dynein, found in cilia and flagella, is crucial to cell motility, for example in spermatozoa, and fluid transport, for example in trachea.
  • Axonemal dynein facilitates the movement of cilia and flagella, and cytoplasmic dynein facilitates transport of intracellular cargos.
  • Dynein intermediate chain 2, axonemal, also known as axonemal dynein intermediate chain 2, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the DNAI2 gene.
