subunit subunit inter action: take it apar t: fall apar t like strands or do they unravel?

What is the evidence that it's the matr ix and not centrioles that are critical for MT nucleation? Plant
cells don't have centrioles How would you experimentally determine or demonstrate that the centrosome serves as a MT
organizing/nucleation site - r ather than a capture site for pr eassembled Mts?...
