Do spirochetes contain microtubules or filaments? The source of spirochetes is a termite colony in the lab of Lynn Margulis at Boston University. Lynn Margulis speaks on the necessity of cytoskeleton in chromosomal division. If microtubules came from spirochetes then mitosis may have developed by symbiosis.
