Centromere protein C 1 is a centromere autoantigen and a component of the inner kinetochore plate. The protein is required for maintaining proper kinetochore size and a timely transition to anaphase. A putative pseudogene exists on chromosome 12. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

CENPC (Centromere Protein C) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CENPC include Limited Scleroderma and Connective Tissue Disease. Among its related pathways are Chromosome Maintenance and Signaling by Rho GTPases. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include centromeric DNA binding.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CENPC Gene
Component of the CENPA-NAC (nucleosome-associated) complex, a complex that plays a central role in assembly of kinetochore proteins, mitotic progression and chromosome segregation. The CENPA-NAC complex recruits the CENPA-CAD (nucleosome distal) complex and may be involved in incorporation of newly synthesized CENPA into centromeres. CENPC recruits DNA methylation and DNMT3B to both centromeric and pericentromeric satellite repeats and regulates the histone code in these regions.
