The gamma-tubulin ring complex (gammaTuRC), purified from the cytoplasm of vertebrate and invertebrate cells, is a microtubule nucleator in vitro. Structural studies have shown that gammaTuRC is a structure shaped like a lock-washer and topped with a cap. Microtubules are thought to nucleate from the uncapped side of the gammaTuRC. Consequently, the cap structure of the gammaTuRC is distal to the base of the microtubules, giving the end of the microtubule the shape of a pointed cap. Here, we… CONTINUE READING
