24129578 these findings demonstrated that three buried glutamic acid-lysine pairs, in concert with hydrophobic interactions of core residues, provide the major specificity and stability requirements for Hec1-Nuf2 dimerization
23056589 NDC80, NUF2 and PTN were significantly aberrantly overexpressed in serous adenocarcinomas.
21270439 These data suggest that the CH and tail domains of Hec1 generate essential contacts between kinetochores and microtubules in cells, whereas the Nuf2 CH domain does not.

19525938 Chromosome congression in HSET + hNuf2 co-depleted cells required the plus-end directed motor CENP-E , which has been implicated in the gliding of mono-oriented kinetochores alongside adjacent K-fibres.
19081476 alternative splicing variants, M-RIP, HYAL2, CDCA1, and MSMB genes showed differential expressions between cancer cells and corresponding normal tissues.
18770861 CDCA1 may therefore be an ideal tumor-associated antigen useful for the diagnosis and immunotherapy of these cancer
17535814 HsNUF2 and CENP-E are required for organization of stable microtubule-kinetochore attachment that is essential for faithful chromosome segregation in mitosis
15961401 the Spc24, Spc25, Nuf2, and Ndc80/Hec1 complex is a faithful copy of the endogenous Ndc80 complex
15548592 NUF2 is a core component of the kinetochore outer plate essential for organizing microtubule attachment sites.
12438418 Data highlight a specific role for hNuf2 in kinetochore-microtubule attachment and suggest that hNuf2 is part of a molecular linker between the kinetochore attachment site and tubulin subunits within the lattice of attached plus ends.
