Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have centromeric DNA binding activity and identical protein binding activity. Predicted to be involved in attachment of mitotic spindle microtubules to kinetochore; attachment of spindle microtubules to kinetochore involved in homologous chromosome segregation; and kinetochore assembly. Localizes to the condensed nuclear chromosome, centromeric region and nuclear pericentric heterochromatin. Orthologous to human CENPC (centromere protein C).
