Cytoplasmic dynein 1 heavy chain 1 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the DYNC1H1 gene.[5][6][7]


DYNC1H1 has been shown to interact with PAFAH1B1[8] and CDC5L.[9]

Clinical relevance[edit]

Mutations in this gene have been shown to cause dominant axonal Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease[10] as well as spinal muscular atrophy with lower extremity predominance (SMA-LED).[11]
