Summaries for GSG2 Gene

GeneCards Summary for GSG2 Gene

GSG2 (Germ Cell Associated 2 (Haspin)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GSG2 include rhinotracheitis. GO annotations related to this gene include protein kinase activity and histone kinase activity (H3-T3 specific).

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GSG2 Gene

  • Serine/threonine-protein kinase that phosphorylates histone H3 at Ser-3 (H3T3ph) during mitosis. This positions and activates AURKB and other components of the chromosomal passenger complex (CPC) at centromeres to ensure proper chromatid cohesion, metaphase alignment and normal progression through the cell cycle.

Post-translational modifications for GSG2 Gene

  • Autophosphorylated on both serine and threonine residues (By similarity). Strongly phosphorylated during mitosis but this does not appear to significantly affect its intrinsic kinase activity. Phosphorylation by AURKB is required for full activity toward histone H3 at Ser-3 in mitosis.
