Domain

Nucleolar protein Dnt1-like, N-terminal (IPR018844)

Short name: Dnt1-like_N

Domain relationships

None.

Description

Cytokinesis in yeasts involves a family of proteins whose essential function is to bind Cdc14-family phosphatase and prevent this from being sequestered and inhibited in the nucleolus. This is the highly conserved N terminus of a family of proteins which act as cytokinesis checkpoint controls by allowing cells to cope with cytokinesis defects. These proteins are required for rDNA silencing and mini-chromosome maintenance [PMID: 17538026].
