Microtubules

Science / Biology / Microtubules: Filaments about 25 nanometers in diameter found in cilia, fiagella, and the cytoskeleton.

Tubulins

Science / Biology / Tubulins: The protein subunits from which microtubules are assembled. MORE

Basal Body

Science / Biology / Basal Body: A structure at the base of a cilium or flagellum; consists of nine triplet microtubules arranged in a circle with no central microtubule. MORE

Cytoskeleton

Science / Biology / Cytoskeleton: A three-dimensional network of microtubules and filaments that provides internal support for the cells, anchors internal cell structures, and functions in cell movement and division. MORE

Mitotic Spindle

Science / Biology / Mitotic Spindle: A network of microtubules formed during prophase. Some microtubules attach to the centromeres of the chromosomes and help draw the chromosomes apart during anaphase. MORE
