New Video Posted: Understanding Intermediate Filaments: Structure, Function, and Dynamics

In this video, I continue to look at the cytoskeleton by examining the structure and function of the Intermediate Filaments.

Intermediate filaments are made of various proteins (lamins, vimentin, desmin, keratin, and neurofilaments), and their composition can change depending on the cell's state. The filaments provide mechanical strength, line the nuclear membrane, and can form higher-order structures with or without accessory proteins.
