Term Information [More information on microtubule nucleation]

Accession
GO:0007020
Name
microtubule nucleation
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
None
Definition
The process in which tubulin alpha-beta heterodimers begin aggregation to form an oligomeric tubulin structure (a microtubule seed). Microtubule nucleation is the initiating step in the formation of a microtubule in the absence of any existing microtubules ('de novo' microtubule formation).
