Overview

This text examines the organization and structure of cytoskeletal proteins, their regulation and precise roles in neuronal development and function. Using a wide range of techniques including ultrastructural, biochemical and molecular biological approaches, the chapters examine such particular components as microtubule-associated proteins, microtubules and microtubule assembly, actin and related proteins and neurofilaments. Also describes the functional importance of the neuronal cytoskeleton during neuronal development and in axonal transport and neurotransmitter release. Designed to stand alone as self-contained reviews of a particular aspect of the field, the chapters amount to a comprehensive view of the neuronal cytoskeleton and its functions.
