KLHL15 is a member of a growing superfamily of kelch repeat-containing proteins. The kelch motif was discovered in the sequence of the Drosophila kelch ORF1 protein and forms a conserved beta-propeller tertiary structure. These kelch-like proteins have been implicated in embryogenesis and carcinogenesis through cytoskeleton organization. KLHL15 mRNA is widely expressed in many tissues and is thought to be involved in protein ubiquination and cytoskeleton organization.
