Summary The fourth edition provides new and updated chapters that focus on experimental models, useful for investigating various aspects of cytoskeleton structure and function. Chapters detail protocols on animal models, plant models, protist models, fungal models, live and fixed-cell imaging, dynamics of cytoskeleton components, cell and organelle motility, genetics, and proteomics. Written in the format of the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series, each chapter includes an introduction to the topic, lists necessary materials and reagents, includes tips on troubleshooting and known pitfalls, and step-by-step, readily reproducible protocols. Authoritative and cutting-edge, Cytoskeleton: Methods and Protocols, Fourth Edition aims to provide an updated version to help researchers expand their understanding of cytoskeleton structure and function
