Title Study of Opto-electronic Properties of a Single Microtubule in the Microwave Regime.

Abstract The research establishes the supremacy of synchrony by proving that though apparently microtubule grows continuously from tubulins, in that growth randomly triggered rapid growth and long silence modes are superimposed by synchrony and de-synchrony glues. When such synchrony is introduced in an artificial cell like environment, microtubule does not grow freely, similar to living cell a lower and upper limit appears which was impossible to observe outside the living cells. The researchers test synchrony protocol in plants, animals and in fungi tubulins to find that the limits for length and speed are valid therein; however, they do not synchronize at a common signal frequency, rather, select isolated & distinct frequency domains. Such a sharing of frequency space cannot occur right now, since, plants, fungi and animal cells were separated more than three billion years before. Thus, a hitherto unknown parameter synchrony actively defines fundamental parameters for the cellular operations.
