Accepted name: minus-end-directed kinesin ATPase
Reaction: ATP + H2O = ADP + phosphate
Systematic name: kinesin ATP phosphohydrolase (minus-end-directed)
Comments: Structurally almost identical to EC (microtubule-severing ATPase) but the movement it catalyses is towards the minus end of microtubules.
