GeneCards Summary for KLHL21 Gene

KLHL21 (Kelch Like Family Member 21) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Immune System and Antigen processing- Ubiquitination and Proteasome degradation. GO annotations related to this gene include ubiquitin-protein transferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is KBTBD4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KLHL21 Gene

  • Substrate-specific adapter of a BCR (BTB-CUL3-RBX1) E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complex required for efficient chromosome alignment and cytokinesis. The BCR(KLHL21) E3 ubiquitin ligase complex regulates localization of the chromosomal passenger complex (CPC) from chromosomes to the spindle midzone in anaphase and mediates the ubiquitination of AURKB. Ubiquitination of AURKB by BCR(KLHL21) E3 ubiquitin ligase complex may not lead to its degradation by the proteasome.
