The mechanisms underlying microtubule dynamic instability are not well understood. We review the existing theoretical models, from single-protofilament to multiple-protofilament kinetic models utilizing a variety of hydrolysis mechanisms. We provide a novel model utilizing a coupled GTP hydrolysis mechanism, accounting for many experimental observations, including the multistep nature of catastrophe.
