27095104 Molecular requirements for the inter-subunit interaction and kinetochore recruitment of SKAP and Astrin have been reported.
26433880 KNSTRN Mutation, a Cutaneous Squamous Carcinoma-Specific Mutation is associated with Solid Tumors and Leukemias.
26348826 study reports presence of KNSTRN mutations in basal cell carcinomas (BCC); mutant KNSTRN disrupts sister chromatid cohesion and promotes genomic instability in functional assays; KNSTRN mutations in BCC appear to occur late in disease progression and are preferentially found in advanced tumors
26242911 Mechanistically, the N-terminal of SKAP binds to EB1, and its C terminus binds to IQGAP1 in migrating cells.
25194279 Findings suggest a role for kinetochore protein KNSTRN mutagenesis in cutaneous squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs) development.
24718257 These findings suggest that SKAP promotes ultraviolet rays-induced cell apoptosis by negatively regulating the anti-apoptotic protein Prp19.
23035123 SKAP constitutes a dynamic link between spindle microtubule plus-ends and mitotic chromosomes to achieve faithful cell division.
22110139 SKAP cooperates with CENP-E to orchestrate dynamic kinetochore-microtubule interaction for faithful chromosome segregation.
19667759 This paper identifies role of gene product of FLJ14502, named SKAP in the paper, in mitosis. SKAP promotes metaphase-to-anaphase transition by mediating seperase activation after spindle assembly checkpoint is satisfied in mitosis.
