    No need to hang about.

    This paper was published in something called the "Journal of Modern Physics", a title probably designed to be confused with the International Journal of Modern Physics, which is a serious and prestigious journal.

    The "Journal of Modern Physics" is published by a Chinese outfit called SCIRP that masquerades as being based in the USA. It seems to be meet the criteria for Beall's List of possibly predatory journals. More here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientific_Research_Publishing. Any paper published in it should be treated with suspicion, as the publishers are motivated by making money from the researchers, who have to pay to get their stuff published. There is therefore an incentive to publish any old rubbish that would be rejected by a proper scientific journal.

    In this case the Abstract does not make sense, so I'm not wasting my time ploughing through it.

    We? Do you presume to speak for others? Leader of the pack? How quaint, almost Trumpian.

    Lest we forget the importance of the role microtubules play in the existence of most all living organisms, here is a neat little video that just adresses the actual chemical activity of microtubules in a clear and concise manner.

    Microtubules;


    and their related Microfilaments
