This gene is proposed to play a role in cerebral cortical development. Mutations in this gene have been associated with microencephaly, cortical malformations, and cognitive disability. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2011]
GeneCards Summary for WDR62 Gene
WDR62 (WD Repeat Domain 62) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with WDR62 include Microcephaly 2, Primary, Autosomal Recessive, With Or Without Cortical Malformations and Neuronal Migration Disorders.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for WDR62 Gene
Required for cerebral cortical development. Plays a role in neuronal proliferation and migration (PubMed:20890278, PubMed:20729831). Plays a role in mother-centriole-dependent centriole duplication; the function seems also to involve CEP152, CDK5RAP2 and CEP63 through a stepwise assembled complex at the centrosome that recruits CDK2 required for centriole duplication (PubMed:26297806).
