The cytoskeleton is a major constituent of the neuronal cytoplasm; it controls cell shape and plays important roles in regulating various physiological processes. In neurons, actin filaments are involved in the growth of the neurite and the neurotransmitter release. Recent findings suggest that actin filaments play a role in modulating [Ca(2+)](i) responses… CONTINUE READING
