Description

tubulin polymerization promoting protein

Gene Summary

Enables several functions, including GTPase activity; magnesium ion binding activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including microtubule cytoskeleton organization; negative regulation of tubulin deacetylation; and positive regulation of protein polymerization. Located in several cellular components, including mitochondrion; mitotic spindle; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Colocalizes with microtubule and microtubule bundle.
