Summaries for CEP250 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CEP250 Gene

  • This gene encodes a core centrosomal protein required for centriole-centriole cohesion during interphase of the cell cycle. The encoded protein dissociates from the centrosomes when parental centrioles separate at the beginning of mitosis. The protein associates with and is phosphorylated by NIMA-related kinase 2, which is also associated with the centrosome. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2009]

Post-translational modifications for CEP250 Gene

  • Differentially phosphorylated during cell cycle. Phosphorylation may regulate association/dissociation from centrosome. During M phase of mitosis, C-terminal part is phosphorylated by NEK2, suggesting that it may trigger the dissociation from the mitotic centrosome. Dephosphorylated in vitro by the PP1 phosphatase.

Cytoplasm, perinuclear region. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome, centriole. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, cilium basal body. Note=Component of the core centrosome. In interphase cells, it specifically associates with the proximal ends of both mother and daughter centrioles. Associates with the centrosome in interphase cells. In mitotic cells, it dissociates from the mitotic spindle poles. At the end of cell division, it reaccumulates at centrosomes. In photoreceptors, found at the proximal ends of basal bodies.
