    About the Lecture

    The lecture Cytoskeleton by Georgina Cornwall, PhD is from the course Cellular Structure.

    Included Quiz Questions

    1. Actin : muscle contraction and cellular movements
    2. Intermediate filaments : act as structural support of the cell
    3. Microtubules : the smallest of the cytoskeletal elements
    1. Synthesis of ribonucleic acid
    2. Helpful in cell organization
    3. Support the cell shape
    4. Anchor the cell organelles in place
    5. Cellular movements
    1. Hair and nails have long chains of actin filaments associated with microtubules, which provide strength to the dead remnants of cells
    2. The cytoskeleton consists of three elements: micro filaments, intermediate filaments, and microtubules
    3. The intermediate filaments provide mechanical support and shape to the cells due to their extreme stabilities and toughness
    4. Microtubules form channel-like structures inside the cell for the quick transport of materials through out the cell
    5. Microtubules are an essential part of cell division as they anchor the chromosomes and migrate them to the opposite poles

    In my school we will take this lecture in 2 hours!!! Way too short and superficial

    Great to Refresh ones Memory
    By Andrey K. on 29. May 2018 for Cytoskeleton

    In terms of studying for something like USMLE, brief intro is fine! Such topics will not be tested on the exam but are necessary to build foundations for other future topics. If you are studying for other exams, this whole module may be a bit light on key information. Great as a refresher though!

    I agree that it was brief if someone was looking for something more comprehensive. It was sufficient for me as I only required this to understand one lecture slide however not enough questions.

    Way too short

    Needs more substance. This was barely long enough to be an introduction.
