UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TUBD1 Gene
In the elongating spermatid it is associated with the manchette, a specialized microtubule system present during reshaping of the sperm head.
Microtubules are cylindrical tubes of 20-25 nm in diameter. They are composed of protofilaments which are in turn composed of alpha- and beta-tubulin polymers. Each microtubule is polarized; at one end alpha-subunits are exposed (-) and at the other, beta-subunits are exposed (+).
