Monomeric gamma -tubulin nucleates microtubules.

gamma-Tubulin is required for nucleation and polarized organization of microtubules in vivo. The mechanism of microtubule nucleation by gamma-tubulin and the role of associated proteins is not understood. Here we show that in vitro translated monomeric gamma-tubulin nucleates microtubules by lowering the size of the nucleus from seven to three tubulin… CONTINUE READING
