Summaries for TPX2 Gene

GeneCards Summary for TPX2 Gene

TPX2 (TPX2, Microtubule Nucleation Factor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TPX2 include Hepatocellular Carcinoma. Among its related pathways are DNA Damage and Regulation of PLK1 Activity at G2/M Transition. GO annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and protein kinase binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TPX2 Gene

  • Spindle assembly factor required for normal assembly of mitotic spindles. Required for normal assembly of microtubules during apoptosis. Required for chromatin and/or kinetochore dependent microtubule nucleation. Mediates AURKA localization to spindle microtubules (PubMed:18663142, PubMed:19208764). Activates AURKA by promoting its autophosphorylation at Thr-288 and protects this residue against dephosphorylation (PubMed:18663142, PubMed:19208764). TPX2 is inactivated upon binding to importin-alpha (PubMed:26165940). At the onset of mitosis, GOLGA2 interacts with importin-alpha, liberating TPX2 from importin-alpha, allowing TPX2 to activates AURKA kinase and stimulates local microtubule nucleation (PubMed:26165940).
