Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits kinetochore binding activity and protein kinase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including attachment of spindle microtubules to kinetochore; regulation of cell cycle process; and spindle assembly involved in female meiosis I. Localizes to condensed chromosome outer kinetochore and condensed nuclear chromosome kinetochore. Is expressed in testis and thymus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in primary autosomal recessive microcephaly 13. Orthologous to human CENPE (centromere protein E).
