You mean by cytoskeleton?
well, it consists of microtubule, microfilament and intermediate filamen...

well i do: microfilaments consits of actin/ intermediate filaments of keratins and microtubuls of tubulin.

--> actin filaments are necesseray for and cell movement, tubulin for internal transport and cell division and intermediate filament for strength

If we want we can all add things:
For example:
microtubules are composed of tubulin which is composed of 2 heterodimers: alpha-tubulin and beta-tubulin that takes place at low calcium concentrations and is facilitated by some microtubule associated proteins. Other microtubule associated proteins have roles in transport, like kinesine(from nucleus to plasma membrane) and dineine(from plasma membrane to nucleus)

Come on Dr.Stein, add something ;) Join in the game
