Target description

Pericentrin (UniProt: O95613; also known as Kendrin, Pericentrin-B) is encoded by the PCNT (also known as KIAA0402, PCNT2) gene (Gene ID: 5116) in human. Pericentrin is a highly conserved protein of the pericentriolar material and is an integral component of the filamentous matrix of the centrosome involved in the initial establishment of organized microtubule arrays in both mitosis and meiosis. The centrosomal localization of pericentrin is shown to be mediated by a pericentrosomal matrix targeting motif, known as PACT domain, in its C-terminal region. Pericentrin plays a role, together with DISC1, in the microtubule network formation. It is also reported to prevent premature centrosome splitting during interphase by inhibiting NEK2 kinase activity at the centrosome. It is also involved in retinal development by regulating photoreceptor ciliogenesis and photoreceptive outer segment formation and plays a role in ciliary development in olfactory receptor neurons. Pericentrin is shown to bind to calmodulin by a C-terminal binding site (aa 3195-3208) and is essential for its functions at centrosomes. During mitosis, pericentrin is cleaved to remove CDK5RAP2 that promotes centriole disengagement and subsequent centriole separation. Mutations in PCNT2 gene are known to cause microcephalic osteodysplastic primordial dwarfism that is characterized by microcephaly and short stature. This ZooMAb recombinant monoclonal antibody, generated by our propriety technology, offers significantly enhanced specificity, affinity, reproducibility, and stability over conventional monoclonals.
