Microtubules are fibrous elements in the cytoplasm of eukaryotic cells, where they perform a wide variety of functions. Microtubules are major organizers of the cell interior and are vitally involved in motility events such as chromosome migration during cell division. To fulfill their physiological function, microtubule arrays have to undergo dramatic changes in their spatial arrangement, and this depends to a large extent on the complex and special dynamic properties of the individual… CONTINUE READING
