Entrez Gene Summary for CEP72 Gene

  • The product of this gene is a member of the leucine-rich-repeat (LRR) superfamily of proteins. The protein is localized to the centrosome, a non-membraneous organelle that functions as the major microtubule-organizing center in animal cells. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for CEP72 Gene

CEP72 (Centrosomal Protein 72kDa) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle, Mitotic and Cell Cycle, Mitotic. GO annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding. An important paralog of this gene is LRRC36.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CEP72 Gene

  • Involved in the recruitment of key centrosomal proteins to the centrosome. Provides centrosomal microtubule-nucleation activity on the gamma-tubulin ring complexes (gamma-TuRCs) and has critical roles in forming a focused bipolar spindle, which is needed for proper tension generation between sister chromatids. Required for localization of KIZ, AKAP9 and gamma-tubulin ring complexes (gamma-TuRCs).

Localization for CEP72 Gene

Subcellular locations from UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CEP72 Gene

Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome. Note=Localizes to the centrosome and centrosome-surrounding particles throughout the cell cycle. These particles disappear after microtubules are depolymerized using nocodazole, suggesting that CEP72-associating particles localize in a microtubule- dependent manner.
