Summaries for NIFK Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NIFK Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that interacts with the forkhead-associated domain of the Ki-67 antigen. The encoded protein may bind RNA and may play a role in mitosis and cell cycle progression. Multiple pseudogenes exist on chromosomes 5, 10, 12, 15, and 19.[provided by RefSeq, Jan 2009]

Post-translational modifications for NIFK Gene

  • Sequentially phosphorylated on Thr-238, Thr-234 and Ser-230. Thr-234 is phosphorylated only when Thr-238 is phosphorylated. Likewise, phosphorylation at Ser-230 requires that Thr-234 and Thr-238 are phosphorylated. Phosphorylation enhances MKI67 binding.
  • Ubiquitination at Lys139
  • Modification sites at PhosphoSitePlus
