The interiors of living cells are structurally and dynamically organized by networks of protein polymers called cytoskeletons. Of these filamentous structures, microtubules are the best characterized and appear to be the most fundamental. The bulk cytoplasm of living eukariotyc cells contains networks of individual microtubules arrayed in parallel and interconnected by filamentous strands (the so-called MAPs-Microtubule Associated Proteins). In this paper, we report on the main features of microtubules, focusing our attention on microtubule dynamics, assembly (disassembly), cellular automata simulation and different nonlinear modes suitable for signaling and information processing.
