GeneCards Summary for DEUP1 Gene
DEUP1 (Deuterosome Assembly Protein 1) is a Protein Coding gene. An important paralog of this gene is CEP63.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DEUP1 Gene
Key structural component of the deuterosome, a structure that promotes de novo centriole amplification in multiciliated cells. Deuterosome-mediated centriole amplification occurs in terminally differentiated multiciliated cells and can generate more than 100 centrioles. Probably sufficient for the specification and formation of the deuterosome inner core. Interacts with CEP152 and recruits PLK4 to activate centriole biogenesis (By similarity).
