Title: Diverse balances of tubulin interactions and shape change drive and interrupt microtubule depolymerization

Abstract

Microtubules undergo catastrophically-fast depolymerization that can be reversed during “rescue” events. Coarse-grained molecular simulations reveal how these behaviors may be controlled tubulin conformation.
