3 and 4). Although conclusive assignment of a biochemical function to these particles is a major goal, most everyone now agrees that they are important participants in microfibril formation. Investigation of the relationship between polymerization and crystallization in Acetobacter xylinum (Chap. 5) established the theoretical basis for predicting that the different geometrical arrangements of the membrane particles determine the size and crystallinity of microfibrils. Similarly, microscopists observed a coincidence between the alignment of microtubules and cellulose microfibrils in certain cell types (Chap.
