Microtubules

ID #1347

How are the A/B tubules made, how can you account for a normal tubule that is spherical and for this one which is abnormal with some dimers missing?


It's a function of 2 of the 3 tubules of a triplet in a basal body growing out into an axoneme. One gets left behind for some reason, and another grows by getting "grafted" to the third, which is left intact.
