This gene encodes a component of the chromosomal passenger complex. This complex is an essential regulator of mitosis;and cell division. This protein is cell-cycle regulated and is required for chromatin-induced microtubule;stabilization and spindle formation. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. Pseudgenes of this;gene are found on chromosomes 7, 8 and 16.
