PCM1 gene

pericentriolar material 1

From NCBI Gene:

The protein encoded by this gene is a component of centriolar satellites, which are electron dense granules scattered around centrosomes. Inhibition studies show that this protein is essential for the correct localization of several centrosomal proteins, and for anchoring microtubules to the centrosome. Chromosomal aberrations involving this gene are associated with papillary thyroid carcinomas and a variety of hematological malignancies, including atypical chronic myeloid leukemia and T-cell lymphoma. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2015]

From UniProt:

Required for centrosome assembly and function. Essential for the correct localization of several centrosomal proteins including CEP250, CETN3, PCNT and NEK2. Required to anchor microtubules to the centrosome. Involved in the biogenesis of cilia.

From NCBI Gene:

  • Papillary thyroid carcinoma

From UniProt:

A chromosomal aberration involving PCM1 is found in a variety of hematological malignancies including atypical chronic myeloid leukemia (atypical CML) and T-cell lymphoma. Translocation t(8;9)(p22;p24) with JAK2 links the protein kinase domain of JAK2 to the major portion of PCM1.

A chromosomal aberration involving PCM1 is found in papillary thyroid carcinomas (PTCs). Translocation t(8;10)(p21.3;q11.2) with RET links the protein kinase domain of RET to the major portion of PCM1.
