This is an microtube gliding assay experiment performed in Steven Koch's lab, we test the microtube polymerization both in heavy water D2O and regular water H2O. mostly, the microtube in D2O has a bright spot, this is a movie cut from the original experiment data, which shows that the microtube break at the bright spot. it might indicate that the bright spot is formed in different structure and easy to break. but this break is not common, I only found this one in the entire movie See for more information: http://openwetware.org/wiki/User:Steven_J._Koch/MTC/April_19_2011/HW_for_April_26
