Remarks on the Number of Tubulin Dimers Per Neuron and Implications for Hameroff-Penrose Orch OR

Abstract

Stuart Hameroff has wrongly estimated that a typical brain neuron has 10 tubulin dimers and wrongly attributed this result to Yu and Baas, (J Neurosci 1994; 14: 2818-2829). In this letter we show that Hameroff’s estimate is based on misunderstanding of the results provided by Yu and Baas, who actually measured the total microtubule length in a single axonal… (More)
