    text
  • localizes to centrosomes, mitotic spindle, kinetochores during cell division
  • localizes to the spindle and to outer kinetochores throughout all phases of mitosis and is recruited to kinetochores by the core kinetochore-microtubule attachment factor HEC1
  • SKA3 protein accumulation at kinetochores in prometaphase is dependent on SGOL1 protein
  • basic FUNCTION
  • SKA3 functions to coordinate checkpoint signaling from the microtubule binding sites within a kinetochore by laterally linking the individual binding sites
  • is required for centrosome integrity and anaphase onset
  • important factor for metaphase to anaphase progression
  • SKA complex functionally complements the KMN network (CASC5, MIS12, NDC80), providing an additional layer of stability to kinetochore-microtubule attachment and possibly signalling completion of attachment to the spindle checkpoint
  • is a novel kinetochore protein, suggesting that SKA3 may have a direct role in mediating kinetochore-microtubule interactions
  • SKA1, SKA2 and SKA3 are required for stabilizing kinetochore-microtubule (KT-MT) interactions and silencing spindle checkpoint during mitosis
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell cycle, division
