This minireview aims to demonstrate that (i) natural nanotubes play important roles in chemical signaling and (ii) they represent one of the deep functional similarities between neural and immune synapses. We also pay attention to the related receptor assemblies and possibilities of chemically synthesized carbon nanotubes to simulate functions of the natural ones.
