Abstract

Microtubules are cytoskeletal structures involved in several important cellular functions including cell division and the movement of organelles in the cell. Most of these functions are underlined with the dynamic polymerization or depolymerization capacity of tubulin and many other proteins associated with tubulin, including tau proteins known to actively participate in these processes.
