Abstract: It has been claimed repeatedly that gamma-tubulin is exclusively localized at the spindle poles in mitotic animal cells, where it plays a role in microtubule nucleation. In addition to this localization, we have observed a gamma-tubulin-specific staining of the mitotic spindle in several animal cells (human, kangaroo rat, mouse, Chinese hamster, Xenopus and Drosophila) using five polyclonal antibodies raised against unique gamma-tubulin sequences and four different fixation protocols. In HeLa and PtK2 cells, g…
