|Synonyms||C20orf1, C20orf2, DIL2, HCA519|
|Function||Spindle assembly factor required for normal assembly of mitotic spindles. Required for normal assembly of microtubules during apoptosis. Required for chromatin and/or kinetochore dependent microtubule nucleation. Mediates AURKA localization to spindle microtubules (PubMed:18663142, PubMed:19208764). Activates AURKA by promoting its autophosphorylation at 'Thr-288' and protects this residue against dephosphorylation (PubMed:18663142, PubMed:19208764). TPX2 is inactivated upon binding to importin- alpha (PubMed:26165940). At the onset of mitosis, GOLGA2 interacts with importin-alpha, liberating TPX2 from importin-alpha, allowing TPX2 to activates AURKA kinase and stimulates local microtubule nucleation (PubMed:26165940).|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, spindle. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, spindle pole Note=During mitosis it is strictly associated with the spindle pole and with the mitotic spindle, whereas during S and G2, it is diffusely distributed throughout the nucleus. Is released from the nucleus in apoptotic cells and is detected on apoptotic microtubules.|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in lung carcinoma cell lines but not in normal lung tissues|

TPX2 (targeting protein for Xklp2) is a microtubule-associated protein involved in targeting the motor protein Xklp2 to microtubules. Ran-GTP activates TPX2 for the chromatin-induced microbutule assembly during M phase. Aurora-A kinase associates with TPX2 at the spindle apparatus and may regulate TPX2 via phosphorylation during the spindle assembly. TPX2 appears to play a structural role in spindle formation. TPX2 activates Eg2 in a microtubule-dependent manner by stimulating the phosphorylation and kinase activity of Eg2. TPX2 is inactivated by binding to importin a, a nuclear import factor. Finally, the suppression of TPX2 with RNA interference causes defects in microtubule organization during mitosis.
