Short name: Centrosomal_protein_57kDa

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships



This entry represents a centrosomal protein of 57 kDa (Cep57-related protein). It is required for spindle microtubule attachment to both kinetochores and centrosomes and functions to tether minus-ends of spindle microtubules to centrosomes. It may act by forming ring-like structures around microtubules, or by serving as a cross-linker or scaffold at the attachment site [PMID: 17803911].
