Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have centromeric DNA binding activity and identical protein binding activity. Predicted to be involved in attachment of mitotic spindle microtubules to kinetochore; kinetochore assembly; and monopolar spindle attachment to meiosis I kinetochore. Localizes to condensed nuclear chromosome, centromeric region and nuclear pericentric heterochromatin. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in CREST syndrome and liver cirrhosis. Orthologous to human CENPC (centromere protein C).
