ascospore-type prospore-specific spindle pole body remodeling 
cytoplasmic microtubule organization +   
equatorial microtubule organization +  
establishment of spindle localization +   
establishment or maintenance of microtubule cytoskeleton polarity +   
horsetail-astral microtubule organization +  
microtubule anchoring +   
microtubule bundle formation +   
microtubule cytoskeleton organization involved in establishment of planar polarity +   
microtubule cytoskeleton organization involved in homologous chromosome segregation  
microtubule cytoskeleton organization involved in mitosis +   
microtubule nucleation +   
The process in which tubulin alpha-beta heterodimers begin aggregation to form an oligomeric tubulin structure (a microtubule seed). Microtubule nucleation is the initiating step in the formation of a microtubule in the absence of any existing microtubules ('de novo' microtubule formation).
microtubule organizing center organization +   
microtubule polymerization or depolymerization +   
microtubule severing  
modulation of microtubule cytoskeleton involved in cerebral cortex radial glia guided migration +

phragmoplast microtubule organization +  
positive regulation of microtubule polymerization +   
radial microtubular system formation
