MOZART2 family (IPR024332)

Short name: MOZART2

Family relationships



The MOZART2 family of proteins (also known as FAM128 and Mitotic-spindle organizing protein 2) operate as part of the gamma-tubulin ring complex, gamma-TuRC, one of the complexes necessary for chromosome segregation. This complex is located at centrosomes and mediates the formation of bipolar spindles in mitosis; it consists of six subunits. However, unlike the other four known subunits, the MOZART proteins, both 1 and 2, do not carry the conserved 'Spc97-Spc98' GCP domain, so the TUBGCP nomenclature cannot be used for it. The exact function of MOZART2 is not clear [PMID: 20360068].
