What is Cytoskeleton?

An elaborate network of filamentous proteinaceous structures present in the cytoplasm is collectively referred to as the cytoskeleton. The cytoskeleton is a composition that helps cells keep their condition and internal organization, and it also provides mechanical support that permits cells to carry out essential functions like movement and division.


The cytoskeleton in a cell is involved in many functions such as mechanical support, motility, maintenance of the shape of the cell.
