...Vladimir A. Volkov Microtubules are dynamic polymers that grow and shrink through addition or loss of tubulin subunits at their ends. Microtubule ends generate mechanical force that moves chromosomes and cellular organelles, and provides mechanical tension. Recent literature describes a number...

... at the distal ends of central pair microtubules. It was termed as central microtubule cap [ 17 , 22 ]. Smaller carrot-like plugs capped the A-tubules in doublet microtubules, by extending into their lumen. Distal filaments connected the plugs and the central microtubule cap to the plasma membrane...

...James G. Wakefield; Carolyn A. Moores; Lori Borgal; James G. Wakefield The formation of a robust, bi-polar spindle apparatus, capable of accurate chromosome segregation, is a complex process requiring the co-ordinated nucleation, sorting, stabilization and organization of microtubules (MTs). Work...

...James G. Wakefield; Carolyn A. Moores; Nuo Yu; Niels Galjart Microtubules are cytoskeletal elements with important cellular functions, whose dynamic behaviour and properties are in part regulated by microtubule-associated proteins (MAPs). The building block of microtubules is tubulin, a heterodimer...
