Gene: CETN2 (centrin 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CETN2
Name: centrin 2
Description: Caltractin belongs to a family of calcium-binding proteins and is a structural component of the centrosome. The high level of conservation from algae to humans and its association with the centrosome suggested that caltractin plays a fundamental role in the structure and function of the microtubule-organizing center, possibly required for the proper duplication and segregation of the centrosome.

Type: protein-coding
