Name
attachment of spindle microtubules to kinetochore
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
alt. id: GO:0051313
attachment of spindle microtubules to chromosome, kinetochore-microtubule attachment, microtubule anchoring at kinetochore, spindle chromosome attachment, spindle kinetochore attachment, amphotelic attachment, bipolar attachment, microtubule and kinetochore interaction, microtubule capture, kinetochore microtubule interaction, kinetochore-microtubule interaction, microtubule and chromosome interaction, spindle-chromosome interaction
Definition
The process in which spindle microtubules become physically associated with the proteins making up the kinetochore complex. Source: GOC:vw, PMID:10322137
Comment
This class covers all attachments of spindle microtubules to the kinetochore, including the many incorrect attachments which initially form and are later corrected to stable attachments with the correct orientation for segregation to procede (sister chromatid biorientation).
