Summaries for SASS6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SASS6 Gene

  • SAS6 is necessary for centrosome duplication and functions during procentriole formation; SAS6 functions to ensure that each centriole seeds the formation of a single procentriole per cell cycle Strnad et al., (2007) [PubMed 17681132].[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

GeneCards Summary for SASS6 Gene

SASS6 (SAS-6 Centriolar Assembly Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SASS6 include Microcephaly 14, Primary, Autosomal Recessive and Autosomal Recessive Primary Microcephaly.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SASS6 Gene

  • Central scaffolding component of the centrioles ensuring their 9-fold symmetry. Required for centrosome biogenesis and duplication: required both for mother-centriole-dependent centriole duplication and deuterosome-dependent centriole amplification in multiciliated cells. Overexpression results in excess foci-bearing centriolar markers. Required for the recruitment of STIL to the procentriole and for STIL-mediated centriole amplification (PubMed:22020124).
