Description
The Cytoskeleton The cytoskskelton grows shrinks and changes shape rapidly and constantlyoDynamic nature that allows it to be involved in the functions that it is involved inoAll cytoskeletal elements are interacting togetherThe cytoskeleton provides support for the cell membranegives the cell shapeIntracellular transportAllow eukaryotic cells to achieve greater sizes than prokaryotic cellsdoesnt have to rely on diffusionThe positioning of organelles within the cell relies on cytoskeletonExocytosis phagocytosisMovement of cells ex during embryonic developmentmovement is essential and movement is not possible without the cytoskeletonWound healing relies on the cytoskeleton movement of cells to cover a would etc relies on the cytoskeletonCell division relies on the cytoskeleton microfilaments invovlved in cytokineses and microtubules involves in the moving of chromosomesIntermediate filamentsoDiscovered last of the 3 filamentsoIntermediate in size btw microfilaments and microtubulesoMuch more stable and less dynamicoBest known for role in animal cells dont have cell wall so have larger burden for supportoCytoplasmic intermediate filaments are very prominent in animal cells to support the structureoNuclear intermediate filaments are present in all organisms
