Title: Watching Cell Movement
Description: Microfilaments (red) and microtubules (green) are parts of the cell cytoskeleton, which gives cells their shape and enables them to divide and migrate, as during metastasis. Some commonly used cancer drugs, such as paclitaxel (Taxol®), target microtubules.
