Detailed entry information

Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0000742
UniProt IDQ69YQ0
Primary gene name(s)SPECC1L
Synonym gene name(s)CYTSA, KIAA0376
Protein nameCytospin-A
Protein functionInvolved in cytokinesis and spindle organization. May play a role in actin cytoskeleton organization and microtubule stabilization and hence required for proper cell adhesion and migration. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:21703590}.
Subcellular locationCytoplasm, cytoskeleton {ECO:0000269|PubMed:21703590}. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, spindle {ECO:0000269|PubMed:21703590}. Cell junction, gap junction {ECO:0000269|PubMed:21703590}. Note=Colocalizes with acetylated alpha-tubulin, gamma-tubulin and F-actin. Also observed in a ring around gamma-tubulin containing centrioles possibly in the microtubule organizing center.
