Gene Ontology Help

Gamma tubulin small complex Overview

GO Annotations consist of four mandatory components: a gene product, a term from one of the three Gene Ontology (GO) controlled vocabularies (Molecular Function, Biological Process, and Cellular Component), a reference, and an evidence code.

Seeds microtubule nucleation at microtubule-organizing centres, controlling the location and timing of nucleation. Component of the spindle pole body, which is responsible for the nucleation and organisation of microtubules within the cell, thus playing a role in chromosome segregation in mitosis and meiosis and controlling cytoplasmic interphase microtubules. The complex is bound directly to the spindle pole body by SPC110 (P32380) on the nuclear face and SPC72 (P39723) on the cytoplasmic face.
GO Slim Terms

The yeast GO Slim terms are higher level terms that best represent the major S. cerevisiae biological processes, functions, and cellular components. The GO Slim terms listed here are the broader parent terms for the specific terms to which this gene product is annotated, and thus represent the more general processes, functions, and components in which it is involved.
