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 ...
Summary of the main functions of microtubules together with basic information
about the structure of microtubules that explains how they provide their main ...
Dynamic networks of protein filaments give shape to cells and power cell
movement. Learn how microtubules, actin filaments, and intermediate filaments ...
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 ...
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
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. 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 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 made up of a protein called tubulin. Actin filaments are made up
of a protein called actin. What are intermediate filaments? Intermediate ...
