Previous HGNC Symbols for HAUS6 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a subunit of the augmin complex. The augmin complex plays a role in microtubule attachment to the kinetochore and central spindle formation. This protein may have a role in efficient chromosome congression and segregation by promoting microtubule-dependent microtubule amplification. Pseudogenes of this gene are located on chromosomes 7 and 20. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants that encode different protein isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2012]
GeneCards Summary for HAUS6 Gene
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HAUS6 Gene
Contributes to mitotic spindle assembly, maintenance of centrosome integrity and completion of cytokinesis as part of the HAUS augmin-like complex. Promotes the nucleation of microtubules from the spindle through recruitment of NEDD1 and gamma-tubulin.
