Summaries for CEP85 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CEP85 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that belongs to the centrosome-associated family of proteins. The centrosome is a subcellular organelle in the animal cell that functions as a microtubule organizing center and is involved in cell-cycle progression. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2013]

GeneCards Summary for CEP85 Gene

CEP85 (Centrosomal Protein 85) is a Protein Coding gene. An important paralog of this gene is CEP85L.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CEP85 Gene

  • Acts as a negative regulator of NEK2 to maintain the centrosome integrity in interphase. Suppresses centrosome disjunction by inhibiting NEK2 kinase activity (PubMed:26220856).

Localization for CEP85 Gene

Subcellular locations from UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CEP85 Gene

Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, spindle pole. Nucleus, nucleolus. Note=Localizes to centrosomes and nucleolus in interphase. Upon entry into mitosis, relocates from nucleolus and accumulates at spindle poles (PubMed:21399614). Associated with the pericentriolar material. Localizes to centrosomes at a low level in G1 phase and a slightly increased level in S phase, with gradually elevated levels during G2 phase. The levels at centrosomes further increase at G2/M, reaching a peak at spindle poles at early mitotic stages and remain high until the end of anaphase (PubMed:26220856). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21399614, ECO:0000269 PubMed:26220856}.
