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 ...
Dynamic networks of protein filaments give shape to cells and power cell
movement. Learn how microtubules, actin filaments, and intermediate filaments ...
The cytoskeleton gives cells structure and shape and allows them to move
around. It's also important for intracellular transport. Learn about...
An a,b-tubulin heterodimer is the basic structural unit of microtubules. The
heterodimer does not come apart, once formed. The a and b tubulins, which are
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 in neurons consist of highly dynamic regions as well as stable
regions, some of which persist after bouts of severing as short mobile polymers.
Microtubules are made up of a protein called tubulin. Actin filaments are made up
of a protein called actin. What are intermediate filaments? Intermediate ...
