Microtubules are slender, hollow, cylindrically-shaped filaments, that found in the cytoskeleton of plant and animal cells where they play a key role in a variety of cellular processes. They are made of spherical protein subunits called tubulins. Sprindle microtubules play a crucial role in cell division.[1]
