GTP-bound tubulin subunits have a high affinity for microtubule ends and dissociate slowly, whereas GDP-bound tubulin subunits have a low affinity and dissociate quickly2. A proposed kinetic lag between polymerization and hydrolysis could generate a ‘GTP cap’ that stabilizes growing ends. Definitive evidence for or against such a cap is still lacking. More recently, cryo-electron microscopy of growing and shrinking microtubules5 suggested a complementary structural–mechanical view, based on changes in the arrangement of tubulin subunits in the polymer lattice.
