TPX2 a microtubule-associated protein required for meiotic and mitotic spindle assembly. Targets a plus end-directed motor (XKLP2) to the minus ends of microtubules in the mitotic spindle. Required for microtubule nucleation around chromosomes in response to the local generation of RanGTP. Binds to and activates Aurora A kinase and targets it to the mitotic spindle.
