Kinetochore scaffold 1 (IPR037388)

Short name: Blinkin

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships



The KMN network (for KNL1, MIS12 and NDC80 complexes) is a hub for signalling at the outer kinetochore [PMID: 17129783] that acts as a receptor for both microtubules and checkpoint proteins [PMID: 25601404]. Kinetochore scaffold 1, also known as Blinkin or KNL1, is a component of the KMN network. It is required to localize a subset of outer kinetochore proteins and is essential for chromosome segregation [PMID: 17981135, PMID: 18045986].
