    464 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    54178 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Homodimer. Interacts (phosphorylated on Ser-425 and Ser-428) with PLK1. Interacts with AKAP9; the interaction occurs in interphase and is lost upon mitotic entry. Interacts with PCNT; the interaction occurs in interphase and is lost upon mitotic entry. Interacts with PDCD6IP; the interaction is direct; CEP55 binds PDCD6IP in a 2:1 stoechiometry; PDCD6IP competes with TSG101 for the same binding site. Interacts with TSG101; TSG101 competes with PDCD6IP for the same binding site; interaction is required for cytokinesis but not for viral budding. Interacts with MVB12A, VPS37B, VPS37C and VPS28.
    • Sequence=BAA91670.1; Type=Erroneous initiation; Note=Translation N-terminally extended.; Evidence={ECO:0000305};

Post-translational modifications for CEP55 Gene

  • There is a hierachy of phosphorylation, where both Ser-425 and Ser-428 are phosphorylated at the onset of mitosis, prior to Ser-436. Phosphorylation at Ser-425 and Ser-428 is required for dissociation from the centrosome at the G2/M boundary. Phosphorylation at the 3 sites, Ser-425, Ser-428 and Ser-436, is required for protein function at the final stages of cell division to complete cytokinesis successfully.
  • Ubiquitination at Lys129, Lys145, Lys180, Lys196, Lys222, Lys233, Lys341, Lys367, Lys398, Lys427, and Lys442

Localization for CEP55 Gene

Subcellular locations from UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CEP55 Gene

Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome, centriole. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome. Cleavage furrow. Midbody. Note=Present at the centrosomes at interphase. A small portion is associated preferentially with the mother centriole, whereas the majority localizes to the pericentriolar material. During mitosis, loss of affinity for the centrosome at the onset of prophase and diffusion throughout the cell. This dissociation from the centrosome is phosphorylation-dependent. May remain localized at the centrosome during mitosis in certain cell types. Appears at the cleavage furrow in late anaphase and in the midbody in cytokinesis.
