Summaries for SPAG5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SPAG5 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein associated with the mitotic spindle apparatus. The encoded protein may be involved in the functional and dynamic regulation of mitotic spindles. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for SPAG5 Gene

SPAG5 (Sperm Associated Antigen 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SPAG5 include patellar tendinitis. An important paralog of this gene is ENSG00000258472.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SPAG5 Gene

  • Essential component of the mitotic spindle required for normal chromosome segregation and progression into anaphase (PubMed:11724960, PubMed:12356910). Required for chromosome alignment, normal timing of sister chromatid segregation, and maintenance of spindle pole architecture (PubMed:17664331). In complex with SKAP, promotes stable microtubule-kinetochore attachments. May contribute to the regulation of separase activity. May regulate AURKA localization to mitotic spindle, but not to centrosomes and CCNB1 localization to both mitotic spindle and centrosomes (PubMed:18361916, PubMed:21402792). Involved in centriole duplication. Required for CDK5RAP2, CEP152, WDR62 and CEP63 centrosomal localization and promotes the centrosomal localization of CDK2 (PubMed:26297806). In non-mitotic cells, upon stress induction, inhibits mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1) association and recruits the mTORC1 component RPTOR to stress granules (SGs), thereby preventing mTORC1 hyperactivation-induced apoptosis (PubMed:23953116). May enhance GSK3B-mediated phosphorylation of other substrates, such as MAPT/TAU (PubMed:18055457).

    1193 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    134422 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Homodimer, with a globular head domain and a long stalk. Homooligomer; the globular head domains associate, resulting in aster-like structures. Binds to microtubules in the mitotic spindle. Interacts with DCLRE1B/Apollo. Part of an astrin (SPAG5)-kinastrin (SKAP) complex containing KNSTRN, SPAG5, PLK1, DYNLL1 and SGOL2. Interacts with KNSTRN. Interacts with RPTOR; this interaction competes with RPTOR binding to MTOR, resulting in decreased mTORC1 formation. Interacts with G3BP1. The complex formed with G3BP1 AND RPTOR is increased by oxidative stress. Interacts with OSBPL8, PCM1 and CDK5RAP2 (PubMed:24424245, PubMed:26297806).

Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome. Cytoplasmic granule. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome, centriolar satellite. Note=Colocalizes with PCM1 at centriolar satellites throughout the cell cycle (PubMed:26297806). In a punctate pattern in interphase cells. During mitosis, detected at spindle poles during prophase, throughout the spindle in metaphase and anaphase, and at midzone microtubules in anaphase and telophase. Efficient targeting to the mitotic spindle may depend upon phosphorylation by GSK3B. Detected on kinetochores of chromosomes that have congressed. The astrin (SPAG5)-kinastrin (SKAP) complex localizes to the microtubule plus ends (By similarity). In non-mitotic non-stressed cells, shows a microtubuli pattern. In arsenite-stressed cells, accumulates in stress granules. {ECO:0000250, ECO:0000269 PubMed:26297806}.
