This gene encodes a member of the WD repeat protein family. WD repeats are minimally conserved regions of approximately 40 amino acids typically bracketed by gly-his and trp-asp (GH-WD), which may facilitate formation of heterotrimeric or multiprotein complexes. Members of this family are involved in a variety of cellular processes, including cell cycle progression, signal transduction, apoptosis, and gene regulation. Studies of the related mouse protein suggest that the encoded protein may play a role in the process of ossification. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009]

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for WRAP73 Gene
The SSX2IP:WRAP73 complex is proposed to act as regulator of spindle anchoring at the mitotic centrosome. Required for the centrosomal localization of SSX2IP and normal mitotic bipolar spindle morphology (PubMed:26545777). Required for the targeting of centriole satellite proteins to centrosomes such as of PCM1, SSX2IP, CEP290 and PIBF1/CEP90. Required for ciliogenesis and involved in the removal of the CEP97:CCP110 complex from the mother centriole. Involved in ciliary vesicle formation at the mother centriole and required for the docking of vesicles to the basal body during ciliogenesis; may promote docking of RAB8A- and ARL13B-containing vesicles (PubMed:26675238).
