Human Gene NUMA1 (uc009ysx.1) Description and Page Index
  Description: Homo sapiens nuclear mitotic apparatus protein 1 (NUMA1), mRNA.
RefSeq Summary (NM_006185): This gene encodes a large protein that forms a structural component of the nuclear matrix. The encoded protein interacts with microtubules and plays a role in the formation and organization of the mitotic spindle during cell division. Chromosomal translocation of this gene with the RARA (retinoic acid receptor, alpha) gene on chromosome 17 have been detected in patients with acute promyelocytic leukemia. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2013].

DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Nuclear mitotic apparatus protein 1; Short=NuMA protein; AltName: Full=SP-H antigen;
FUNCTION: Highly abundant component of the nuclear matrix where it may serve a non-mitotic structural role, occupies the majority if the nuclear volume. Required for maintenance and establishment of the mitotic spindle poles, functionning as a tether linking bulk microtubules of the spindle to centrosomes. May be involved in coordination of the alignment of the mitotic spindle to the cellular polarity axis, which is a prerequisite for asymmetric cell divisions.
SUBUNIT: Homodimer. Also forms multiarm oligomers by association of C-terminal tail domains, oligomers may further assemble to form a hexagonal nuclear lattice-like network. Interacts with TNKS.
INTERACTION: P63096:GNAI1; NbExp=4; IntAct=EBI-521611, EBI-618639; P81274:GPSM2; NbExp=6; IntAct=EBI-521611, EBI-618655;
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Nucleus matrix. Chromosome. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, spindle pole. Note=Resides in the nuclear matrix during interphases. Dissociates from condensing chromosomes during early prophase, and relocates to the spindle poles via dynein/dynamin association, it remain there until the anaphase onset. Before the complete disintegration of the nuclear lamina. As mitosis progresses it reassociates with telophase chromosomes very early during nuclear reformation, before substantial accumulation of lamins on chromosomal surfaces is evident.
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Isoform Numa-m: Cytoplasm. Note=Mainly clustered at the centrosomal region.
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Isoform Numa-s: Cytoplasm. Note=Mainly clustered at the centrosomal region.
DOMAIN: The C-terminal tubulin-binding domain mediates direct binding to microtubules, independantly of dynein and dynactin, and induces their bundling and stabilization.
PTM: ADP-ribosylated by TNKS during mitosis.
PTM: Phosphorylated in the C-terminal tail during mitosis, probably by CDK1. Phosphorylation increases solubility and promotes association with dynein and subsequent translocation to the spindle poles.

The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.

-  Orthologous Genes in Other Species
  Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
