Many agents used in cancer chemotherapy act on a specific phase of the cell cycle and are classified as cell cycle-specific. Some of these cell cycle-specific drugs, the antimitotics, interact with tubulin, the major protein of mitotic spindles, and cause metaphase arrest, thus halting mitosis. Understanding the dynamic processes involved in tubulin polymerization/depolymerization and how chemotherapeutic agents disrupt these processes is fundamental to understanding and anticipating common adverse effects and planning nursing interventions.
