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 - Thick Protein Tubes. Microtubules are usually discussed with
microfilaments. Although they are both proteins that help define cell structure and
The cytoskeleton gives cells structure and shape and allows them to move
around. It's also important for intracellular transport. Learn about...
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 ...
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 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 ...
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. These straight, hollow cylinders are found throughout the
cytoplasm of all eukaryotic cells (prokaryotes don't have them) and carry out a
variety of ...
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 ...
