HAUS augmin-like complex subunit 5 (IPR029131)

Short name: HAUS5

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


This entry represents HAUS augmin-like complex subunit 5 (HAUS5) from eukaryotes. The HAUS augmin-like complex shares similarity with Drosophila Augmin and contributes to mitotic spindle assembly, maintenance of chromosome integrity and completion of cytokinesis [PMID: 19427217, PMID: 19369198].

Plant and animal augmin complexes have similar functions in microtubule nucleation and organisation in mitotic microtubule arrays. The human augmin complex contains 8 subunits [PMID: 19427217]. The Arabidopsis augmin complex contains both conserved and unique subunits compared with its animal counterparts [PMID: 22505726]. This entry includes plant AUG5.
