Which of the following statements about the cytoskeleton is incorrect?

a. The dynamic aspect of cytoskeletal function is made possible by the assembly and disassembly of a few simple types of proteins into large aggregates.

b. Microfilaments are structurally rigid and resist compression, while microtubules resist tension (stretching).

c. Movement of cilia and flagella is the result of motor proteins causing microtubules to move relative to each other.
d. Chemicals that block the assembly of the cytoskeleton would prevent many different processes in cells.

e. Transport vesicles among the membranes of the endomembrane system depend on the function of the cytoskeleton.

    The cell walls of bacteria, fungi, and plant cells and the extracellular matrix of animal cells are all external to the plasma membrane. Which of the following is a characteristic of all of these extracellular structures?

    A) They must block water and small molecules in order to regulate the exchange of matter and energy with their environment.

    B) They must permit information transfer between the cell's cytoplasm and the nucleus.

    C) They must provide a rigid structure that maintains an appropriate ratio of cell surface area to volume.

    D) They are constructed of materials that are largely synthesized in the cytoplasm and then transported out of the cell.

    Which of the following statements about the cytoskeleton is true?

    A) The dynamic aspect of cytoskeletal function is made possible by the assembly and disassembly of a large number of complex proteins into larger aggregates.

    B) Microfilaments are structurally rigid and resist compression, while microtubules resist tension (stretching).

    C) Movement of cilia and flagella is the result of motor proteins causing microtubules to move relative to each other.

    D) Chemicals that block the assembly of the cytoskeleton would cause little effect on the cell's metabolism

    E) Transport vesicles among the membranes of the endomembrane system produce the cytoskeleton.
