I learned more. Microtubules are not only a protein transport mechanism, but it is a network inside cell what changes, moves and organises into structures, as I understand microtubules can shrink, grow, split and divide. Every cell is full of them. Perhaps even speed is sufficient if molecule doesn't have to move separately, but some structures just grow or split or join. May be that how neuron works comes from the processes what also happen in more primitive organisms like bacteria. Unfortunately nobody knows what happens there exactly, and a lot may happen there.
