A Lateral Cap model of microtubule dynamic instability
The co-existence and interconversion of growing and shrinking microtubules have been termed ‘dynamic instability’, and have been directly observed to occur under a variety of conditions in vitro and in vivo. Previous ...
The effect of podophyllotoxin on microtubule dynamics
We have investigated the effects of podophyllotoxin on the dynamic properties of microtubules assembled from pure tubulin dimer. Excess podophyllotoxin causes the complete disassembly of microtubules, through formation of ...
