Latest Cytoskeleton Stories
A new tool allows scientists to see the immune system like never before.
Researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have obtained the first high-resolution, three-dimensional images of a cell with a nucleus undergoing cell division.
Every cell in the human body contains a complex system to transport essential cargoes such as proteins and membrane vesicles, from point A to point B.
Most cells rely on structural tethers to position chromosomes in preparation for cell division.
LONDON, July 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Great Ormond Street Hospital has announced that a team led by scientists at its research partner, UCL Institute of Child Health (ICH), funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC) and AVI BioPharma, have made an important breakthrough in the development of a treatment for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). Together with the MDEX Consortium, chaired by the ICH's Professor Francesco Muntoni, the group showed that a gene based drug...

Revealing another part of the story of muscle development, Johns Hopkins researchers have shown how the cytoskeleton from one muscle cell builds finger-like projections that invade into another muscle cellâ€™s territory, eventually forcing the cells to combine.
Almost all bacteria owe their structure to an outer cell wall that interacts closely with the supporting MreB protein inside the cell.
Researchers from the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute have overturned conventional wisdom on how cell movement across all species is controlled, solving the structure of a protein that cuts power to the cell 'motor'.
