  • Elements of the cytoskeleton interact intimately and communicate bidirectionally with cellular membranes. Such interactions are critical for a host of cellular processes. Here we focus on the many types of interactions that exist between the cytoskeleton and the plasma membrane to illustrate why these cellular components can never truly be studied in isolation in vivo. We discuss how membrane-cytoskeleton interactions are mediated and modulated, and how many proteins involved in these… CONTINUE READING
