UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CDK2AP2 Gene
Plays a role in regulating the self-renewal of embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and in maintaining cell survival during terminal differentiation of ESCs. Regulates microtubule organization of metaphase II oocytes (By similarity). Inhibits cell cycle G1/S phase transition by repressing CDK2 expression and activation; represses CDK2 activation by inhibiting its interaction with cyclin E and A (PubMed:23781148).
