Protein Information
Name PRC1 (HGNC:9341)
Function Key regulator of cytokinesis that cross-links antiparrallel microtubules at an average distance of 35 nM. Essential for controlling the spatiotemporal formation of the midzone and successful cytokinesis. Required for KIF14 localization to the central spindle and midbody. Required to recruit PLK1 to the spindle. Stimulates PLK1 phosphorylation of RACGAP1 to allow recruitment of ECT2 to the central spindle. Acts as an oncogene for promoting bladder cancer cells proliferation, apoptosis inhibition and carcinogenic progression (PubMed:17409436).
Cellular Location Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, spindle pole. Midbody. Note=Colocalized with KIF20B in the nucleus of bladder carcinoma cells at the interphase. Colocalized with KIF20B in bladder carcinoma cells at prophase, metaphase, early anaphase, at the midzone in late anaphase and at the contractile ring in telophase (PubMed:17409436). Predominantly localized to the nucleus of interphase cells. During mitosis becomes associated with the mitotic spindle poles and localizes with the cell midbody during cytokinesis
Tissue Location Overexpressed in bladder cancer cells (PubMed:17409436).

PRC1 Antibody: PRC1 (Protein Regulator of Cytokinesis 1) is a key regulator of cytokinesis and has been identified as a substrate for several cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs). High levels of PRC1 expression occurs during S and G2/M and drops dramatically after mitosis exit and G1 entry. It is located in the nucleus during interphase and binds to the midzone of mitotic spindles during anaphase and is localized to the cell midbody during cytokinesis. Depletion of PRC1 has been shown to prevent cellular cleavage, but it has no effect on nuclear division, demonstrating the importance of PRC1 in mitosis.
