General annotation (Comments)

Function

In complex with KIF18B, constitutes the major microtubule plus-end depolymerizing activity in mitotic cells By similarity. Regulates the turnover of microtubules at the kinetochore and functions in chromosome segregation during mitosis By similarity.

Subunit structure

Interacts with CENPH. Interacts with MTUS2/TIP150; the interaction is direct. Interacts with MAPRE1; the interaction is direct, regulated by phosphorylation and is probably required for targeting to growing microtubule plus ends By similarity. Interacts with KIF18B at microtubule tips; this interaction increases the affinity of both partners for microtubule plus ends and is required for robust microtubule depolymerization. Phosphorylation by AURKA or AURKB strongly reduces KIF18B-binding By similarity.

Subcellular location

Cytoplasmcytoskeleton By similarity. Nucleus By similarity. Chromosomecentromere By similarity. Chromosomecentromerekinetochore By similarity. Note: Associates with the microtubule network at the growing distal tip (the plus-end) of microtubules, probably through interaction with MTUS2/TIP150 and MAPRE1. Association with microtubule plus ends is also mediated by interaction with KIF18B By similarity. Centromeric localization requires the presence of BUB1 and SGOL2 By similarity.

Tissue specificity

Testis. Localized to the meiotically active cells of the seminiferous epithelia in the testis.

Domain

The microtubule tip localization signal (MtLS) motif; mediates interaction with MAPRE1 and targeting to the growing microtubule plus ends By similarity.

Post-translational modification

Phosphorylation by AURKB, regulates association with centromeres and kinetochores and the microtubule depolymerization activity By similarity.

Ubiquitinated By similarity.

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the kinesin-like protein family. MCAK/KIF2 subfamily.

Contains 1 kinesin-motor domain.

Sequence caution

The sequence AAC53528.1 differs from that shown. Reason: Frameshift at positions 26 and 56.
