    basic FUNCTION
  • necessary for microtublule nucleation at the centrosome
  • is a core component of gamma-tubulin ring complex (gamma-TuRC) in neuronal migrating cells
  • role of TUBGCP2 as an indispensable component of microtubule nucleation with critical functions in neuronal migration
  • CELLULAR PROCESS

    PATHWAY

    a component
  • TUBGCP2, TUBGCP3 formed complexes with gamma-tubulin in the nucleoli
  • INTERACTION
    DNA
    RNA
    small molecule
    protein
  • UTP6 N-terminal region indirectly associated with gamma-tubulin through binding with gamma-tubulin complex protein 2 (TUBGCP2) and/or 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
