Microtubules are protein structures found within cells, one of the components of the cytoskeleton. They have diameter of ~24 nm and varying length from several micrometers to possible millimeters in axons of nerve cells. Microtubules serve as structural components within cells and are involved in many cellular processes including mitosis, cytokinesis, and vesicular transport.
