    Hey guys,

    What is the cytoskeleton? What exactly is the role of it? And what are actin filaments?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    It is a network of proteins that supports the cell and transports organelles and other stuff around the cell.

    Actin filaments are proteins that can use ATP to move. They are found in the cytoskeleton.
