The effect of minus ends on the microtubule steady state
Author(s): Mitra Shojania ,William Spillman

Subject(s): CX.3

Abstract:

Dynamic instability describes microtubule assembly in which individual microtubules exhibit alternating phases of elongation and rapid shortening. This dynamic is significantly different for the plus and minus ends of a microtubule. In this work, by considering the contribution of the plus and minus ends, we have investigated the behavior of T-tubulin concentration in the steady state and while being disturbed by the small perturbation.
