Concept Info

NAME

Microtubules

DESCRIPTION

Microtubules are cylindrical polymers composed of alpha and beta tubulin. They are a major component of the cytoskeleton and mediate crucial cellular functions including formation of the mitotic spindle that segregates chromosomes during cell division and intracellular trafficking.
