Summaries for CDK5RAP2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CDK5RAP2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a regulator of CDK5 (cyclin-dependent kinase 5) activity. The protein encoded by this gene is localized to the centrosome and Golgi complex, interacts with CDK5R1 and pericentrin (PCNT), plays a role in centriole engagement and microtubule nucleation, and has been linked to primary microcephaly and Alzheimer's disease. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2013]

GeneCards Summary for CDK5RAP2 Gene

CDK5RAP2 (CDK5 Regulatory Subunit Associated Protein 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CDK5RAP2 include microcephaly 3, primary, autosomal recessive and microcephaly, primary autosomal recessive. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle, Mitotic and Cell Cycle, Mitotic. GO annotations related to this gene include protein kinase binding and transcription regulatory region DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is PDE4DIP.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CDK5RAP2 Gene

  • Potential regulator of CDK5 activity via its interaction with CDK5R1. Negative regulator of centriole disengagement (licensing) which maintains centriole engagement and cohesion. Involved in regulation of mitotic spindle orientation (By similarity). Plays a role in the spindle checkpoint activation by acting as a transcriptional regulator of both BUBR1 and MAD2 promoter. Together with MAPRE1, it may promote microtubule polymerization, bundle formation, growth and dynamics at the plus ends.

  • Microcephaly 3, primary, autosomal recessive (MCPH3) [MIM:604804]: A disease defined as a head circumference more than 3 standard deviations below the age-related mean. Brain weight is markedly reduced and the cerebral cortex is disproportionately small. Despite this marked reduction in size, the gyral pattern is relatively well preserved, with no major abnormality in cortical architecture. Affected individuals are mentally retarded. Primary microcephaly is further defined by the absence of other syndromic features or significant neurological deficits due to degenerative brain disorder. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15793586}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
