The microtubules are rigid but fragile biological polymers that define the cellular road network. They are crossed by molecular vehicles that transport proteins from one end of the cell to the other. Scientists have shown that this transport induces damage to the lattice of the microtubules that can quickly lead to their complete destruction. They also discovered that a self-repair mechanism allows the microtubules to resist the damages induced by this molecular transport and even be strengthened by it.
