Organization and functions of cytoskeleton in metazoan ciliated cells.


Ciliated cells are characterized by a highly organized cytoskeleton which is connected with the ciliary apparatus. The organization of microtubules, microfilaments, and cytokeratin filaments is described and the relationships of each network with the ciliary apparatus are emphasized. Possible functions of such a complex cytoskeleton are discussed.
