IAS Fellow's Public Lecture - Intermediate filaments
The cytoskeleton is an intracellular structure composed of proteins polymerized in filaments organized into networks in the cytoplasm. The cytoskeleton consists of three major components; actin, intermediate filaments and microtubules. The intermediate filament network is involved in various major cell functions such as the stabilization and mechanical resilience of the cell, cell migration and signal transduction. More and more diseases, for instance, some neurodegenerative diseases, are associated with mutations in intermediate filament protein genes. Elements of the state of the art on intermediate filaments will be presented.
This lecture is free and open to all.
