    1. Microtubules are tubules made of dimers of alpha and beta tubulin units.

    2. Microfilaments are filaments consisting of a double strand of globular Actin units.

    3. If microfilaments are disrupted:
    - there is no effect on either the shape of the cell or the organization of ...

    Solution Summary

    Microtubules and microfilaments are examined. The subunits composition of each composed are determined.
