GeneCards Summary for CEP162 Gene
CEP162 (Centrosomal Protein 162kDa) is a Protein Coding gene.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CEP162 Gene
Required to promote assembly of the transition zone in primary cilia. Acts by specifically recognizing and binding the axonemal microtubule. Localizes to the distal ends of centrioles before ciliogenesis and directly binds to axonemal microtubule, thereby promoting and restricting transition zone formation specifically at the cilia base. Required to mediate CEP290 association with microtubules.
