Microtubules and Commuting Receptors
Receptors that undergo nucleo-cytoplasmic shuttling require microtubules for proper physiologic function. Is it the collapse of microtubules network or simply the arrest of cell cycle in G2/M phase that changes receptors function? The terms of disengagement and the integrity versus dynamics of the microtubules shall guide the ideal drug design.
Keywords: Cytoskeleton, Transcriptional regulation, Nuclear receptors, Drug metabolism
