Cytoplasmic dynein 1 light intermediate chain 2 (DYNC1LI2)

Acts as one of several non-catalytic accessory components of the cytoplasmic dynein 1 complex that are considered to be involved in linking dynein to cargos and to adapter proteins that regulate dynein function. Cytoplasmic dynein 1 acts as a motor for the intracellular retrograde motility of vesicles and organelles along microtubules.

May play a role in binding dynein to membranous organelles or chromosomes. .
