Lively Cytoskeleton

The image shows a human dermal fibroblast, a type of cell widely used in research, which is responsible for making the extracellular matrix and collagen. Actin (magenta) and tubulin (cyan) are proteins which form the cellular cytoskeleton, an essential structure that helps cells to maintain their shape, internal organization and support them to perform crucial cellular functions like movement and division.
