give me suggestions

 the first stage, I discoved the microtubule and MAPs(microtubule associate protein) have some changes when the cell was stimulated  by some physical factors.
based on this simple phenomenon, I want to pay attention to study what's the function of microtubule in cell signaling & transduction.
unfortunately, I don't know the next step what should I do and how to do.
could you give me some suggestions and ideas? 
I'm looking forward to your reply and suggestion.   thank you!

Hi lynn984108,
My first suggestion is to dig into the literature and determine if someone else has not already studied the particular physical factor that you are observing.
If you find publications with related findings, determine what they accomplished and what may be missing based on your observations. If there is nothing published then you want to spend some time making sure your testing methodology (system) is robust and capable of providing you with meaningful data. In other words, you need to establish your model and how to test it.
Good luck
