Microtubule assembly

Post by Da Vinci » Sun Oct 01, 2006 7:09 pm

I know you guys are bugged all the time by homework questions but I can't find these, for my Microbiology Class

If a drug that inhibits microtubule assembly what would occur to the cell as a result?

Why would the drug be given/useful for?




thanks for your help,
K

I forget the name of the substance, but it suspends mitosis in prometaphase because microtubuli cause organisation in the metaphasic plane.
