    Understanding specific cargo distribution in differentiated cells is a major challenge. Trafficking kinesin proteins (TRAKs) are kinesin adaptors. They bind the cargo binding domain of kinesin-1 motor proteins forming a link between the motor and their cargoes. To refine the TRAK1/2 binding sites within the kinesin-1 cargo domain, rationally designed C-terminal truncations of KIF5A and KIF5C were generated and their co-association with TRAK1/2 determined by quantitative co-immunoprecipitations following co-expression in mammalian cells. Three contributory regions forming the TRAK2 binding site within KIF5A and KIF5C cargo binding domains were delineated. Differences were found between TRAK1/2 with respect to association with KIF5A.
