Term Information [More information on microtubule plus-end]

Accession
GO:0035371
Name
microtubule plus-end
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
growing microtubule plus end, microtubule plus end
Definition
The growing (plus) end of a microtubule. In vitro, microtubules polymerize more quickly at the plus end than at the minus end. In vivo, microtubule growth occurs only at the plus end, and the plus end switches between periods of growth and shortening, a behavior known as dynamic instability.
