Gene: CENPJ (centromere protein J) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CENPJ
Name: centromere protein J
Description: Exhibits several functions, including identical protein binding activity; protein kinase binding activity; and tubulin binding activity. Involved in microtubule cytoskeleton organization; positive regulation of centriole elongation; and positive regulation of establishment of protein localization. Localizes to the microtubule organizing center; nucleoplasm; and plasma membrane. Implicated in Seckel syndrome 4; primary autosomal recessive microcephaly; and primary autosomal recessive microcephaly 6.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
