CEP152 centrosomal protein 152kDa

Also known as: MCPH4; MCPH9; SCKL5


This gene encodes a protein that is thought to be involved with centrosome function. Mutations in this gene have been associated with primary microcephaly (MCPH4). Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2010]
