New Video Posted: What is the Cytoskeleton? | Cell Biology Explained

This is the first in a series of four videos on the cytoskeleton - What is the Cytoskeleton? | Cell Biology Explained.

In this video, I introduce the cytoskeleton, a complex network of protein fibres and accessory proteins that provides essential support and strength to the cell. The cytoskeleton absorbs mechanical stress, controls cell shape and movement, enables muscle contraction, and aids in chromosome separation during mitosis and meiosis. Additionally, it helps the cell divide and provides trackways for moving molecules and vesicles.
