Summary
CENPK is a subunit of a CENPH (MIM 605607)-CENPI (MIM 300065)-associated centromeric complex that targets CENPA (MIM 117139) to centromeres and is required for proper kinetochore function and mitotic progression (Okada et al., 2006 [PubMed 16622420]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

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.

    Status: VALIDATED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (3) differs in the 5' UTR and uses an alternate splice site in its 5' coding region, resulting in use of an alternate start codon, compared to variant 1. The encoded isoform (3) has a slightly longer, but distinct N-terminus compared to isoform 1.

    Status: VALIDATED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (4) differs in the 5' UTR, lacks a portion of the 5' coding region, initiates translation at a downstream start codon, and lacks an alternate in-frame exon in its central coding region, compared to variant 1. The encoded isoform (4) has a shorter N-terminus and lacks an internal segment compared to isoform 1.
