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 are hollow tubes about 20 to 25 nanometers in diameter that
function in cell movement and provide structure within the cell. These tubes
consist of ...
Microtubules are hollow, fibrous shafts whose main function is to help support

Microtubules in neurons consist of highly dynamic regions as well as stable
regions, some of which persist after bouts of severing as short mobile polymers.
