Microtubules

ID #1329

How is a basal body created, is the microtubules transported to the basal body to make it?


Good observation, but no. A basal body is another example of a microtubule organizing center. The major MOC is the centrosome, but there are others, like basal bodies. The MTs are "grown" there.
