Summary
This gene encodes a member of the polo family of serine/threonine protein kinases. The protein localizes to the nucleolus during G2, to centrosomes during G2/M, and to the cleavage furrow during cytokinesis. It is required for progression through mitosis, cell survival, and embryonic development. The mouse genome contains a pseudogene similar to this gene. Three transcript variants encoding two different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2011]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
