    basic FUNCTION
  • plays a unique role within the TUBG1 components in attachment of this complex to the major microtubule organizing centers (MTOCs) site
  • plays an essential role in mitotic spindle formation as a component of the Gamma-tubulin ring complex
  • MST1 contributes to the microtubule-organizing centers (MTOCs) function through regulation of TUBGCP3
  • MZT1 is a 'priming factor' for gamma-tubulin ring complex (GTuRC) that allows spatial regulation of nucleation

    small molecule
    protein
  • a direct interaction between recombinant MST1 and the N-terminal region of TUBGCP3
  • recognition of gamma-tubulin ring complex integrity is mediated by MZT1, which binds not only to the TUBGCP3 subunit as previously shown, but cooperatively also to other GCPs through a conserved hydrophobic motif present in the N-termini of TUBGCP2, TUBGCP3, TUBGCP5 and TUBGCP6
