GeneCards Summary for NINL Gene

NINL (Ninein-Like) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle, Mitotic and Cell Cycle, Mitotic. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding. An important paralog of this gene is NIN.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NINL Gene

  • Involved in the microtubule organization in interphase cells. Overexpression induces the fragmentation of the Golgi, and causes lysosomes to disperse toward the cell periphery; it also interferes with mitotic spindle assembly. May play a role in ovarian carcinogenesis.
