Molecular struts called microtubules interact with the heart’s contractile machinery to provide mechanical resistance for the beating of the heart, which could provide a better understanding of how microtubules affect the mechanics of the beating heart, and what happens when this goes awry, researchers have found using high-resolution microscopy.
