Microtubules (micro- + tube + -ule) are a component of the cytoskeleton, found
throughout the cytoplasm. These tubular polymers of tubulin can grow as long as
Microtubules are filamentous intracellular structures that are responsible for
various kinds of movements in all eukaryotic cells. Microtubules are involved in ...

microtubules, is blue. Microtubules are part of the cytoskeleton, ...
Dynamic networks of protein filaments give shape to cells and power cell
movement. Learn how microtubules, actin filaments, and intermediate filaments ...
Mar 30, 2013 ... Microtubules are critical throughout the cell cycle – they organize cellular
components and split them in two. Here are a series of videos of the ...
Microtubules are hollow, fibrous shafts whose main function is to help support
and give shape to the cell. They also serve a transportation function, as they are ...
Microtubules are the main "building blocks" that form the cytoskeleton - which is
the cell's framework within which all components of the cell are held in position ...
Microtubules, the third principal component of the cytoskeleton, are rigid hollow
rods approximately 25 nm in diameter. Like actin filaments, microtubules are ...
A microtubule is a polymer of globular tubulin subunits, which are arranged in a
cylindrical tube measuring 24 nm in diameter — more than twice the width of an ...
