Microtubules, components of the cytosqueleton, play an important role in cell division, cell migration and thus in the cancer proccess through dynamic instability. Therefore they are an important target for anti-cancer treatment. Proper modelling of dynamic instability is a crucial tool to understand the mechanism of action of microtubule targeting agents. In this paper, we propose a new concept for GTP-tubulin hydrolysis which allow the model to accurately reproduce microtubule dynamics observed in vitro or in cells. This approach will be more appropriate to take study the effects of drugs.
