Which of the following statements about the cytoskeleton is true?

A) The dynamic aspect of cytoskeletal function is made possible by the assembly anddisassembly 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 causingmicrotubules to moverelative to each other.

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

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

Answer:

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