  • FunctionPromotes ATP-dependent removal of tubulin dimers from microtubules. Regulates the turnover of microtubules at the kinetochore and functions in chromosome segregation during mitosis.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed at high levels in thymus and testis, at low levels in small intestine, the mucosal lining of colon, and placenta, and at very low levels in spleen and ovary; expression is not detected in prostate, peripheral blood Leukocytes, heart, brain, lung, liver, skeletal muscle, kidney or pancreas. Isoform 2 is testis-specific.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the kinesin-like protein family. MCAK/KIF2 subfamily.
    Contains 1 kinesin-motor domain.
  • Developmental stageIsoform 2 is expressed in fetal testis.
  • DomainThe microtubule tip localization signal (MtLS) motif; mediates interaction with MAPRE1 and targeting to the growing microtubule plus ends.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR. Phosphorylation by STK12, regulates association with centromeres and kinetochores and the microtubule depolymerization activity.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Nucleus. Chromosome > centromere. Chromosome > centromere > kinetochore. Associates with the microtubule network at the growing distal tip (the plus-end) of microtubules, probably through interaction with MTUS2/TIP150 and MAPRE1 (By similarity). Centromeric localization requires the presence of BUB1 and SGOL2.
