Cytoskeleton. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of the cytoskeleton of a human skin cell. The cell nucleus is at centre right. The rest of the cell's contents have been biochemically extracted. The cytoskeleton is made up of three types of proteins; actin filaments, microtubules and intermediate filaments. The cytoskeleton maintains the cell's shape, allows some cellular mobility and is involved in intracellular transport. Magnification: x3,800 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
