Physcomitrella patens and the cytoskeleton’s role in cell development

Physcomitrella patens and the cytoskeleton’s role in cell development






Recent research using moss may give more insight into how the components of the cytoskeleton communicate with each other. The cytoskeleton, a supportive, intracellular structure, is integral to cellular function. Composed of microtubules, actin filaments, and intermediate filaments, the cytoskeleton transports proteins and maintains cellular integrity. However, the mechanisms it […]
