The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the highly conserved cyclin family, whose members function as regulators of the cell cycle. This protein binds and activates cyclin-dependent kinase 2 and thus promotes transition through G1/S and G2/M. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2016]
GeneCards Summary for CCNA2 Gene
CCNA2 (Cyclin A2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CCNA2 include Splenic Diffuse Red Pulp Small B-Cell Lymphoma and Retinoblastoma. Among its related pathways are Transcriptional misregulation in cancer and Cyclin A/B1 associated events during G2/M transition. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include protein kinase binding. An important paralog of this gene is CCNA1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for CCNA2 Gene
Cyclin which controls both the G1/S and the G2/M transition phases of the cell cycle. Functions through the formation of specific serine/threonine protein kinase holoenzyme complexes with the cyclin-dependent protein kinases CDK1 or CDK2. The cyclin subunit confers the substrate specificity of these complexes and differentially interacts with and activates CDK1 and CDK2 throughout the cell cycle.
