Tubulin, gamma 1

This gene encodes a member of the tubulin superfamily. The encoded protein localizes to the centrosome where it binds to microtubules as part of a complex referred to as the gamma-tubulin ring complex. The protein mediates microtubule nucleation and is required for microtubule formation and progression of the cell cycle. A pseudogene of this gene is found on chromosome 7.

Assessing associations between the AURKA-HMMR-TPX2-TUBG1 functional module and breast cancer risk in BRCA1/2 mutation carriers.
Pujana et al., l'Hospitalet de Llobregat, Spain. In Plos One, 2014
While interplay between BRCA1 and AURKA-RHAMM-TPX2-TUBG1 regulates mammary epithelial polarization, common genetic variation in HMMR (gene product RHAMM) may be associated with risk of breast cancer in BRCA1 mutation carriers.

Chelly et al., Paris, France. In Brain, 2014
Complex cortical malformations associated with mutations in tubulin genes: TUBA1A, TUBA8, TUBB2B, TUBB3, TUBB5 and TUBG1 commonly referred to as tubulinopathies, are a heterogeneous group of conditions with a wide spectrum of clinical severity.
Beta tubulin isoforms are not interchangeable for rescuing impaired radial migration due to Tubb3 knockdown.
Chelly et al., Paris, France. In Hum Mol Genet, 2014
Inputs from genetic studies were provided through the identification of several mutated genes encoding either proteins associated with microtubules (DCX, LIS1, KIF2A, KIF5C, DYNC1H1) or tubulin subunits (TUBA1A, TUBB2B, TUBB5 and TUBG1), in malformations of cortical development (MCD).
Fission yeast MOZART1/Mzt1 is an essential γ-tubulin complex component required for complex recruitment to the microtubule organizing center, but not its assembly.
Toda et al., Hiroshima, Japan. In Mol Biol Cell, 2013
γ-Tubulin functions as a multiprotein complex called the γ-tubulin complex (γ-TuC), consisting of GCP1-6 (GCP1 is γ-tubulin).
Mutations in TUBG1, DYNC1H1, KIF5C and KIF2A cause malformations of cortical development and microcephaly.
Chelly et al., Paris, France. In Nat Genet, 2013
Here we report the discovery of multiple pathogenic missense mutations in TUBG1, DYNC1H1 and KIF2A, as well as a single germline mosaic mutation in KIF5C, in subjects with MCD.
Clinical implication of centrosome amplification and expression of centrosomal functional genes in multiple myeloma.
Hajek et al., Brno, Czech Republic. In J Transl Med, 2012
Gene expression was significantly down-regulated in the CA positive group in comparison to CA negative in the following genes: AURKB, PLK4, TUBG1 (P < 0.05).

Ferguson-Smith et al., Belém, Brazil. In Cytogenet Genome Res, 2012
From these 4, GCA6 and GCA20 correspond to individual chromosomes (GCP8 and GCP15), while the other 2 share homology with parts of GCP1 and GCP2, respectively.

Nuclear γ-tubulin associates with nucleoli and interacts with tumor suppressor protein C53.
Dráber et al., Czech Republic. In J Cell Physiol, 2012
in transformed as well as in non-transformed interphase mammalian cells gamma-tubulin is present not only in cytoplasm but also in nuclei and nucleoli where it can be translocated during mitosis
Feeding cells induced by phytoparasitic nematodes require γ-tubulin ring complex for microtubule reorganization.
de Almeida Engler et al., Antibes, France. In Plos Pathog, 2011
The transcripts of two Arabidopsis γ-tubulin (TUBG1 and TUBG2) and two γ-tubulin complex proteins genes (GCP3 and GCP4) are upregulated in galls.
Cdk1 and BRCA1 target γ-tubulin to microtubule domains.
Gettemans et al., Gent, Belgium. In Biochem Biophys Res Commun, 2011
overexpression of Cdk1 or BRCA1 greatly expands the gamma-tubulin coating of microtubules, suggesting that the microtubule-bound gamma-tubulin is involved in DNA damage response.
CEP70 protein interacts with γ-tubulin to localize at the centrosome and is critical for mitotic spindle assembly.
Zhou et al., Tianjin, China. In J Biol Chem, 2011
These results thus report for the first time the identification of Cep70 as an important centrosomal protein that interacts with gamma-tubulin and underscore its critical role in the regulation of mitotic spindle assembly.
