CYKOSKELETON ---> is a microscopic network of protein filaments and tubules in the cytoplasm of many living cells, giving them shape and coherence.
---> gives the cell shape and mechanical resistance to deformation.
---> can also actively contract, thereby deforming the cell and the cell's environment and allowing cells to migrate.
--> it also involved in many cell signaling pathways.
--> it segregates chromosomes during cellular division.
--> it also involved in cytokinesis (the division of a mother cell into 2 daughter cells.
--> it also provides a scaffold to organize the content of the cell in space.
