CENPJ [ENSP00000371308]

Centromere protein J; Plays an important role in cell division and centrosome function by participating in centriole duplication (PubMed:17681131, PubMed:20531387). Inhibits microtubule nucleation from the centrosome. Involved in the regulation of slow processive growth of centriolar microtubules. Acts as microtubule plus-end tracking protein that stabilizes centriolar microtubules and inhibits microtubule polymerization and extension from the distal ends of centrioles . Required for centriole elongation and for STIL-mediated centriole amplification . Required for the recruitment of CEP295 to the proximal end of new-born centrioles at the centriolar microtubule wall during early S phase in a PLK4-dependent manner . May be involved in the control of centriolar-microtubule growth by acting as a regulator of tubulin release .
