Physio – Chemical Nature of Cytopsasm

The living content of the protoplasm between plasma membrane and nucleus is called cytoplasm. Living content of eukaryotes is divided in to nucleus and cytoplasm. These living contents (nticlebs and cytoplasm) collectively form protoplasm. The cytoplasm has four components: Cytomembrane system It consists of

THE CYTOSKELETON

The cytoskeleton is a network of fibers suspended through the cytoplasm. There are three fibers in the cytoskeleton. These are microtubuies, microfilaments and intermediate filaments. Functions of Cytoskeleton – The cytoskeleton performs following functions in the organisms: They give mechanical support to the cell
