Microtubules vanessa and morgan

  • A microtubules are filamentous intracellular structures that are responsible for various kinds of movements in all eukaryotic cells.
  • Found throughout the cytoplasm of all Eukaryota cells (prokaryotes don't have them) and carry out a variety of functions, ranging from transport to structural support.
  • Microtubules, which are about 25 nanometers in diameter, form part of the cytoskeleton that gives structure and shape to a cell, and also serve as conveyor belts moving other organelles throughout the cytoplasm.
  • The microtubule network interconnects the Golgi apparatus with the plasma membrane to guide secretory vesicles for export, and also transports mitochondria back and forth in the cytoplasm.
  • Microtubules also work together to form larger structures that work on the outside of the cells.
  • Micotubules relate to BCIT like the students because they are throughout the cytoplasm.
  • Microtubules also work together to form larger structures that work on the outside of the cells.
