GeneCards Summary for KLHL42 Gene

KLHL42 (Kelch-Like Family Member 42) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include ubiquitin-protein transferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is KLHL36.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KLHL42 Gene

  • Substrate-specific adapter of a BCR (BTB-CUL3-RBX1) E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complex required for mitotic progression and cytokinesis. The BCR(KLHL42) E3 ubiquitin ligase complex mediates the ubiquitination and subsequent degradation of KATNA1. Involved in microtubule dynamics throughout mitosis.

Localization for KLHL42 Gene

Subcellular locations from UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KLHL42 Gene

Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, spindle. Note=Predominantly in mitotic cells. Localized diffusely in the cytoplasm during the interphase. During metaphase is localized throughout the cell and more widely dispersed than the microtubules. In anaphase cells is localized between the two sets of separated chromosomes as well as at the spindle poles. During telophase is localized arround the nuclei of the two daughter cells. Not detected at the midbody region during cytokinesis.
