    motifs/domains
  • N-terminus can multimerize with the N-terminus of other Cep57 molecules
  • one myosin-like globular head domain
  • one iq domain
  • two putative nuclear localization signals (NLS1 having a role in the nuclear localization of CEP57 and NLS2)
  • C-terminus contains a second coiled-coil domain that directly binds to MTs (microtubules)
  • mono polymer homomer , dimer

  • colocalized with the microtubular network
  • serves as a link with its N-terminus anchored to the centriole or centromatrix and its C-terminus to Microtubule
  • basic FUNCTION
  • playing a role in cytokinesis, cell shape, and specialized functions such as secretion and capping
  • mediating the nuclear translocation and mitogenic activity of FGF2
  • potentially playing a role in the postmeiotic phase of germ cell differentiation
  • role in attaching spindle microtubules to both kinetochores and centrosomes, suggesting similar mechanisms may be used for generating these two distinct linkages in mitosis
  • pivotal role in the unconventional secretion versus nuclear translocation of FGF2
  • as a spindle microtubule-binding protein, Cep57 is also responsible for the proper organization of the spindle microtubule and localization of spindle pole focusing proteins
  • CELLULAR PROCESS
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS
    PATHWAY
    metabolism
    signaling
    a component
  • with UIMC1, form a complex in intact cells
  • NEDD1-binding centrosome component, that could function as a spindle pole- and microtubule-stabilizing factor for establishing robust spindle architecture
  • INTERACTION
    DNA
    RNA
    small molecule
    protein
  • FGF2 binding partner, as an intracellular mediator of FGF2 trafficking, which is essential for the nuclear translocation of the growth factor
  • four Translokin partners: sorting nexin 6, Ran-binding protein M and the kinesins KIF3A and KIF3B (through their interaction with Translokin, are involved in two exclusive complexes allowing the bidirectional trafficking of FGF2)
  • UIMC1
  • interaction with NEDD1 is necessary for the centrosome localization of CEP57
  • cell & other
  • can bundle microtubules in mammalian cells

  • Cep57 expression absent in testes from vitamin A-deficient mice, which do not have any round spermatids, and was reduced in RARalpha null mice, which have lowered numbers of round spermatids in their testes
