Finite number of ring complexes that serve as nucleating sites MT polymer ization is an entropy driven reaction favor ed by elevated temperature. What's missing on the left side of this dr aw ing? Water because it's going fr om disorder ed to or dered; where does ener gy go? Condit ions t hat promot e MT assembly ? -physioogical salt conditions -low Ca+2 -GTP -physiological temper ature If 30 uM, nucleation w ill be shorter, elongation w ill occur faster, equilibrium w ill be 10 uM higher for 15 uM, longer nucleation, more diagonal slope, 10 uM less (equib at 5 uM) for 10 uM, straight line With microtubules, plus end grows much faster than at the minus end D.
