From NCBI Gene:
This gene encodes a protein which forms a distinct beta-propeller protein structure of kelch domains allowing for protein-protein interactions. Mutations in this gene have been associated with Hodgkin lymphoma. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2010]
Involved in pinching off the separated nuclei at the cleavage furrow and in cytokinesis (PubMed:20107318). Required for mitotic integrity and maintenance of chromosomal stability. Protects cells against mitotic errors, centrosomal amplification, micronucleus formation and aneuploidy. Plays a key role of midbody function involving abscission of the daughter cells during cytokinesis and appropriate chromosomal and nuclear segregation into the daughter cells (PubMed:22988245, PubMed:23713010).

- Hodgkin lymphoma
Lymphoma, Hodgkin, classic (CHL): A malignant disease characterized by progressive enlargement of the lymph nodes, spleen and general lymphoid tissue, and the presence of large, usually multinucleate, cells (Reed-Sternberg cells). Reed-Sternberg cells compose only 1-2% of the total tumor cell mass. The remainder is composed of a variety of reactive, mixed inflammatory cells consisting of lymphocytes, plasma cells, neutrophils, eosinophils and histiocytes. [MIM:236000]
A chromosomal aberration disrupting KLHDC8B has been found in a family with the nodular sclerosis type of Hodgkin lymphoma. Translocation t(2,3)(q11.2;p21.31).
