Abstract: The spindles needed for the segregation of Chromosomes are made by several nucleation nucleation pathways. One of the most novel Microtubule nucleation pathway is branching Microtubule nucleation, which forms Microtubules from the surface of pre-existing spindles. This branching Microtubule formation is spatially and temporarily regulated tightly by the cells via several factors like TPX2 and Augmin. This review discusses the contribution of the branching effectors.
