FunctionIntegral component of the filamentous matrix of the centrosome involved in the initial establishment of organized microtubule arrays in both mitosis and meiosis. Plays a role, together with DISC1, in the microtubule network formation. Is an integral component of the pericentriolar material (PCM). May play an important role in preventing premature centrosome splitting during interphase by inhibiting NEK2 kinase activity at the centrosome.
Tissue specificityExpressed in all tissues tested, including placenta, liver, kidney and thymus.
Involvement in diseaseMicrocephalic osteodysplastic primordial dwarfism 2
DomainComposed of a coiled-coil central region flanked by non-helical N- and C-terminals.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm > cytoskeleton > microtubule organizing center > centrosome. Centrosomal at all stages of the cell cycle. Remains associated with centrosomes following microtubule depolymerization. Colocalized with DISC1 at the centrosome.
