    174 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    19778 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Homooligomer; probably required for localization to centrosomes (PubMed:20551181). Forms a complex with KIAA0753/OFIP and OFD1; within this complex may stabilize the interaction between OFD1 and KIAA0753/OFIP (PubMed:26643951). Interacts with PCM1; this interaction may be mediated by KIAA0753/OFIP (PubMed:26643951). Interacts with PLK1 in later G1, S, G2 and M phases of the cell cycle; this interaction recruits PLK1 to centrosomes (PubMed:24018379).
