Abstract

This paper aims to identify the role of the inter-protofilament (PF) sliding in the bending of microtubules (MTs). A molecular structural model (MSM) was employed to study the dependence of bending on the inter-PF bonds. It was found that the inter-PF bonds serve as an angle spring that controls the...
