Fluorescence microscopy analysis of the renewal dynamics of the molecules that make up the microtubules revealed that nanoscopic defects in the wall of the microtubule are at the origin of the incorporation of new tubulin molecules. These structural defects can lead to original properties and thus offer a new lever for regulating their stability.
