Summaries for KNTC1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for KNTC1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that is one of many involved in mechanisms to ensure proper chromosome segregation during cell division. Experimental evidence indicated that the encoded protein functioned in a similar manner to that of the Drosophila rough deal protein. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for KNTC1 Gene

KNTC1 (Kinetochore Associated 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KNTC1 include histrionic personality disorder and dependent personality disorder. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle, Mitotic and Cell Cycle, Mitotic.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KNTC1 Gene

  • Essential component of the mitotic checkpoint, which prevents cells from prematurely exiting mitosis. Required for the assembly of the dynein-dynactin and MAD1-MAD2 complexes onto kinetochores.

Localization for KNTC1 Gene

Subcellular locations from UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KNTC1 Gene

Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Chromosome, centromere, kinetochore. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, spindle. Note=Dynamic pattern of localization during the cell cycle. At interphase, uniformly distributed throughout the cytoplasm and nucleus. By prophase and until late stages of prometaphase, a fraction of the total pool is concentrated at kinetochores. By metaphase, detected at kinetochores, along spindle fibers and most prominently at the poles. By late anaphase until the end of telophase, no longer detectable on kinetochores or along spindle fibers, but still present at the spindle poles.
