The tubulin code: Empowering microtubules



Microtubules are essential filamentous components of the cytoskeleton that are present in virtually all eukaryotic cells, where they ensure essential functions: Microtubules establish and maintain cell shape, serve as tracks for the intracellular transport, or build the mitotic and meiotic spindles that segregate genetic material during cell division. Microtubules further form the structural backbone of cilia and flagella, essential organelles that are involved in cell-cell signalling and cell motility.
