Abstract

A good approximation of the atomic structure of a microtubule has been derived from docking the high-resolution structure of tubulin, solved by electron crystallography, into lower resolution maps of whole microtubules. Some structural interactions with other molecules, including nucleotides, drugs, motor proteins and microtubule-associated proteins, can now be predicted.
