Centrosomal protein 57kDa
This gene encodes a cytoplasmic protein called Translokin. This protein localizes to the centrosome and has a function in microtubular stabilization. The N-terminal half of this protein is required for its centrosome localization and for its multimerization, and the C-terminal half is required for nucleating, bundling and anchoring microtubules to the centrosomes. This protein specifically interacts with fibroblast growth factor 2 (FGF2), sorting nexin 6, Ran-binding protein M and the kinesins KIF3A and KIF3B, and thus mediates the nuclear translocation and mitogenic activity of the FGF2. It also interacts with cyclin D1 and controls nucleocytoplasmic distribution of the cyclin D1 in quiescent cells. This protein is crucial for maintaining correct chromosomal number during cell division. Mutations in this gene cause mosaic variegated aneuploidy syndrome, a rare autosomal recessive disorder. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011] (from

The cDNA library contained oxidative metabolic genes in mitochondria (triose phosphate dehydrogenase, NADH4, pyrophosphate synthase, 16S rRNA ribosome, succinate-CoA ligase and ATP synthase 6); transcriptional and translation genes poly (A) binding protein, t-RNA-guanine transglycoslase, ribosomal protein L23, ribosomal protein S15A, eukaryotic translation initiation factor 3, Rab interaction protein 5, splicing factor-arginine serine rich 5, and ADP-ribosylation factor-like 6 interacting protein), oxide stress related genes (ferritin high chain and high-mobility group protein 2); protein activating and signaling pathway related genes (casein kinase, serine kinase 2 and phosphatidylinositol-four-phosphate adaptor protein-1-associated protein); cell differentiation and apoptosis associated genes (NB4 cell apoptosis related protein and myeloid differentiation primary response protein) and five genes with unknown function (KIAA0092, CGI-147protein, GCI-35, nucleolar phosphoprotein Nopp34 and Mus muscular partial mRNA for hypothetical protein), as well as a novel gene unmatched to the sequence in GenBank.
