Microtubules are not in equilibrium with free tubulin dimers. Instead, microtubules constantly grow and shrink. How do cells achieve this behavior? A) Cells are exempt from the laws of thermodynamics. B) One microtubule grows as another shrinks. C) Tubulin is degraded and replaced at a high rate. D) Energy is constantly supplied to the system.
