YOUR NAME: ERIN


DEFINITION/FUNCTION (INCLUDE BOTH PARTS "M&M"):
The cytoskeleton is responsible for cell shape, movement of the cell as a whole, and motility of organelles within a cell. Unlike the human skeleton, the cytoskeleton is extremely dynamic, meaning the filament systems are able to lengthen or shorten very rapidly. This dynamic nature of the cytoskeleton is necessary for cells to be able to change shape, complete cell division, or migrate, and represents one of the cytoskeleton's most important features.

FOUND IN PLANT, ANIMAL, OR BOTH?:
Both plant and animal cells.
