The cytoskeletal system is composed of different proteins networks. The cytoskeleton has versatile structural and functional features, which are essential for almost all cellular processes. The dysfunctioning of the cytoskeleton can often results in pathological alterations of cellular functions, which can lead to diseases. In the first module the course we discuss the components and properties of the cytoskeletal protein networks. The second module lays special emphasis on presenting the pathological alterations of the cytoskeletal system and the underlying diseases.
I. module: Components and functions of the cytoskeleton.
II. module: Pathological alterations and diseases related to the cytoskeleton.
III. module: Biophysical approaches in the investigation of the cytoskeleton.
