What is a cytoskeleton? A network of proteins that is constantly changing to meet the needs of a cell.
What are intermediate filaments? Microtubules are long hallow tubes. They give the cell its shape and acts as "tracks" for the movement of organelles. When cells divide, microtubles form fibers that pull half of the DNA into each new cell.
What is a nucleus? A nucleus is the storehouse for most of the genetic information, or DNA in your cells.
What does DNA contain? DNA contains genes that are instructions for making proteins.
