Required for cytokinesis. Essential for the structural integrity of the cleavage furrow and for completion of cleavage furrow ingression.
Ubiquitously expressed. Present at highest levels in the brain, at high levels in the placenta and testis, at intermediate levels in the intestine, ovary, skeletal muscle and thymus and at lower levels in heart, kidney, liver, lung, pancreas, prostate and spleen. Overexpressed in many tumor types including breast, colorectal, endometrial, hepatic, kidney, lung, ovarian and pancreatic tumors.
Contains 1 PH domain.
Expressed in fetal brain, heart, kidney, liver, lung, skeletal muscle, spleen and thymus. In dividing cells expression increases during S and G2 phases, peaks at mitosis and subsequently drops as cells enter G1 phase.
Phosphorylated during mitosis. Ubiquitinated, and this requires FZR1/CDH1.
Nucleus. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Cytoplasm > cell cortex. Mainly found in the nucleus during interphase. Colocalizes with cortical F-actin upon nuclear envelope breakdown in mitosis and subsequently concentrates in the area of the prospective contractile ring in anaphase. This pattern persists until telophase, when the protein becomes concentrated in the midbody.
