mitotic spindle-templated microtubule nucleation 
negative regulation of microtubule nucleation 
positive regulation of microtubule nucleation +   
Any process that increases the rate, frequency or extent of microtubule nucleation. Microtubule nucleation is the 'de novo' formation of a microtubule, in which tubulin heterodimers form metastable oligomeric aggregates, some of which go on to support formation of a complete microtubule. Microtubule nucleation usually occurs from a specific site within a cell.
regulation of microtubule nucleation +   
regulation of microtubule nucleation by Ran protein signal transduction
