spindle astral microtubule organization definition: A process that is carried out at the cellular level which results in the formation, arrangement of constituent parts, or disassembly of astral microtubules, any of the spindle microtubules that radiate in all directions from the spindle poles. [GOC:mah]
negative regulation of spindle astral microtubule depolymerization definition: Any process that stops, prevents or reduces the frequency, rate or extent of the depolymerization of astral microtubules. [GOC:mah]
spindle astral microtubule depolymerization definition: The removal of tubulin heterodimers from one or both ends of an astral microtubule. An astral microtubule is any of the spindle microtubules that radiate in all directions from the spindle poles and are thought to contribute to the forces that separate the poles and position them in relation to the rest of the cell. [GOC:dph]
spindle astral microtubule nucleation definition: The 'de novo' formation of an astral microtubule, in which tubulin heterodimers form metastable oligomeric aggregates, some of which go on to support formation of a complete microtubule. [GOC:mah]
