Microfilaments and microtubules are both important elements of the cytoskeleton, maintaining the structure and integrity of the cell, but there are several differences between microfilaments and microtubules. In this article, we share this information on microfilaments versus microtubules.
Microfilament and Microtubulues are made from different individual subunits. Microfilaments are made from ACTIN, while microtubules are made from TUBULIN.
In this lesson, we explain the differences between flippase, floppase, and scramblase. Flippase vs Floppase vs Scramblase as lipid transporters in the cell membrane with Quick and Easy Explanation
In this lesson, we explain what types of molecules can pass through the cell plasma membrane and what are the factors that determine whether a molecule can cross a cell membrane: Quick and Easy Explanation on the Cell Membrane
The cell membrane is a mosaic and fluid structure. This lesson explains the factors that affect cell membrane fluidity, increase and decrease membrane fluidity of the phospholipid bilayer.
