Taxol engenders the formation of two types of unusual ordered arrays of microtubules (MT) in fibroblasts of mouse dorsal root ganglion-spinal cord explant cultures. One consists of lattice-like arrangements of MTs interdigitating with filamentous elements in the cytoplasm. The other of MTs arrayed along endoplasmic reticulum (ER) cisternae at regular ~30 nm intervals. Short linear elements, presumably proteinaceous, extend between the MTs and ER cisternae.
