Summaries for NUF2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NUF2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that is highly similar to yeast Nuf2, a component of a conserved protein complex associated with the centromere. Yeast Nuf2 disappears from the centromere during meiotic prophase when centromeres lose their connection to the spindle pole body, and plays a regulatory role in chromosome segregation. The encoded protein is found to be associated with centromeres of mitotic HeLa cells, which suggests that this protein is a functional homolog of yeast Nuf2. Alternatively spliced transcript variants that encode the same protein have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for NUF2 Gene

NUF2 (NUF2, NDC80 Kinetochore Complex Component) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle, Mitotic and Mitotic Metaphase and Anaphase.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NUF2 Gene

  • Acts as a component of the essential kinetochore-associated NDC80 complex, which is required for chromosome segregation and spindle checkpoint activity (PubMed:12438418, PubMed:14654001, PubMed:15062103, PubMed:15235793, PubMed:15239953, PubMed:15548592, PubMed:17535814). Required for kinetochore integrity and the organization of stable microtubule binding sites in the outer plate of the kinetochore (PubMed:15548592). The NDC80 complex synergistically enhances the affinity of the SKA1 complex for microtubules and may allow the NDC80 complex to track depolymerizing microtubules (PubMed:23085020).

    Molecular mass:
    54304 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Component of the NDC80 complex, which consists of NDC80/HEC1, CDCA1, SPBC24 and SPBC25. The NDC80 complex is formed by two subcomplexes composed of NDC80/HEC1-CDCA1 and SPBC24-SPBC25. Each subcomplex is formed by parallel interactions through the coiled-coil domains of individual subunits. Formation of a tetrameric complex is mediated by interactions between the C-terminal regions of both subunits of the NDC80/HEC1-CDCA1 subcomplex and the N-terminal regions of both subunits of the SPBC24-SPBC25 complex. The tetrameric NDC80 complex has an elongated rod-like structure with globular domains at either end. May interact with AURKB/Aurora-B. Directly interacts with CENPE; this interaction determines CENPE kinetochore localization.
