Name  Gamma tubulin Short Name  Gamma_tubulin
Type  Family Description  Gamma-tubulins constitute a ubiquitous and highly-conserved subfamily of the tubulin family. The protein is found at microtubule organising centres (MTOC) such as the spindle poles or the centrosome, suggesting that it is involved in the microtubule nucleation []. It exists in two main protein complexes: gamma-tubulin ring complexes (gamma-TuRCs) and the the gamma-tubulin small complex (gamma-TuSC) [].
