      Microtubules are key cytoskeletal elements of all eukaryotic cells and are assembled of evolutionarily conserved α-tubulin–β-tubulin heterodimers. Despite their uniform structure, microtubules fulfill a large diversity of functions. A regulatory mechanism to control the specialization of the microtubule cytoskeleton is the ‘tubulin code’, which is generated by (i) expression of Cited by:   Microtubule network plays a key role in cell division, motility and intracellular trafficking. Microtubule lattices are generally regarded as stable structures that undergo turnover through dynamic instability of their ends [[1][1]]. However, recent evidence suggests that microtubules also exchange tubulin dimers at the sites of lattice defects, which can either be induced by mechanical stress Author: Amol Aher, Dipti Rai, Laura Schaedel, Jeremie Gaillard, Karin John, Laurent Blanchoin, Laurent Blanc.

The family of proteins called the tubulin and the microtubules they form when they aggregate are extremely important in the cell and oncology book, as we are increasingly learning, important in diseases that afflict so many.

This field of investigation is a testament to how important both basic and clinical sciences are in understanding disease mechanisms and making inroads into therapies. Microtubule. Microtubules are cytoskeletal polymers made of repeating αβ-tubulin heterodimers that play essential roles in all eukaryotic cells.

The dynamic character of microtubules is key to their functions, as evidenced by the large number of natural compounds that bind tubulin, alter microtubule dynamics and result in mitotic by: Microtubules, together with microfilaments and intermediate filaments, form the cell cytoskeleton.

The microtubule network is recognized for its role in regulating cell growth and movement as well as key signaling events, which modulate fundamental cellular by:   Microtubules are core components of the eukaryotic cytoskeleton with essential roles in cell division, shaping, motility and intracellular transport.

Despite their functional heterogeneity, Author: Carsten Janke, Carsten Janke, Maria M. Magiera, Maria M. Magiera. The book discusses the recent studies showing the role of actin and microtubule cytoskeleton interactions in cell-wall assembly and dynamics.

The authors examine the role of both microtubules in the mechanics of plant cells, and actin filaments in the motility of chloroplasts.

Cancer invasion is a cell- and tissue-driven process for which the physical, cellular, and molecular determinants adapt and react throughout the progression of the disease.

Cancer invasion is initiated and maintained by signaling pathways that control cytoskeletal dynamics in tumor cells and the turnover of cell-matrix and cell-cell junctions. The centrosome organizes microtubules and plays a pivotal role in cell division.

Despite being small in size, it is a highly complex structure consisting of hundreds of proteins. The team is particularly interested in studying the roles of a number of novel centrosomal proteins in organelle function, cell division, health, and disease.

Cortical microtubules can direct the orientation of newly synthesized cellulose fibres in plant cell walls. However, cell wall-mediated steering mechanisms have also been anticipated. New research reveals that cellulose synthesis may be directed by pre-existing cellulose fibres in the walls.
